For four hundred years, craftsmen in the towns of Tsubame and Sanjo have specialised in fine metal works, including handmade knives, copper pots, traditional Japanese tools, and, more recently, a wide variety of western cutlery. Today, the modern Tsubamesanjo shop is duty-free, and a great place to pick up high quality items for your home. For serious chefs, if you purchase a kitchen knife, you can get your name engraved on it, which makes a lovely souvenir.
