The material of the nail file is a thin stainless steel plate of about 1 mm. By striking a steel called “tagane” there, the blades of the nail file are erected one by one. The process of raising this blade is called “sharpening”. At Yoshida Yasuri Seisakusho, a sharpening machine is used to make each one by hand. The craftsman sharpens the chisel, adjusts the strength of the sharpening machine, and drives the file blades into the stainless steel plate at regular intervals.
The pointed shape type is a classic shape handed down by Yoshida Yasuri Seisakusho, and is suitable for mild incurvated nail healing and cuticle treatment using the tip. The other round type has a rounded tip so that children and the elderly can use it. There are two colors, matte silver and matte black. In addition, stainless steel is resistant to rust and can be washed with water. This is a cosmetic box specification that is perfect for gifts.
About The Company
About Yoshida Yasuri
Yoshida Yasuri Seisakusho was founded in the latter half of the Meiji era in Tsubame City, Niigata Prefecture, which is one of Japan’s leading producers of metal processed products. It is a company with a history of about 120 years since they started manufacturing files. Inheriting the inherited technology, craftsmen manually manufacture nail files one by one.
The beginning of the metalworking town of Tsubame dates back to the Edo period. It became famous as a major production area for the manufacture used in Japanese houses, and inherited and developed the technology cultivated in making Japanese-nail. It was widely derived from the hardware that was used. These technologies still take root in the swallow land and have become one of Japan’s leading metal processing industrial areas.
Yoshida File Mfg. Co., Ltd. is set up as a home and factory, and the noise of manufacturing nail files at the factory was already a part of life. Having seen his parents’ nail file manufacturing from an early age, it was natural to think that he would eventually succeed. After graduating from high school, he entered the family business and has been manufacturing nail files for more than 40 years.
The basic format of Yoshida Yasuri Seisakusho is OEM. There are few specialized manufacturers of stainless steel nail files nationwide. Since there were many inquiries about exports to overseas as well as domestic production, four craftsmen were enrolled in addition to their parents, and they clung to the nail file sharpener and manufactured every day.
