1. Please explain the origin of the name your representative/famous brand.
The origin of the brand name "Hoken" comes from the fact that Nigata-cho has been number on in Japan in production of files (the tool) for many years.
Because there were many swordsmiths involved in file production back in the old days, we gave it the name "Hoken" ("ken" means "sword").
