Asano Mokkousho was founded in 1950, In the heart of Niigata Prefecture’s Tsubame-Sanjo area marking the beginning of a journey that would intertwine the essence of rural resilience and metropolitan innovation. Teisuke Asano, born to a farmer, and Sakae Sasagawa, the progeny of a Tokyo manufacturer, united their contrasting worlds to form a company that would become a leader in the agricultural tool industry.
The company’s products, hooks, and gaffs, were more than mere tools; they were lifelines crafted with the meticulous metalworking skills of the Tsubame-Sanjo region, intended for farming, goods distribution, and fishing.
Decades have passed, and Asano Mokkousho’s catalog has expanded significantly to include a diverse array of tools from hoes and sickles for the professional farmer, to gardening tools and outdoor utility knives for domestic use. Despite this growth, the company still produces its original hooks and gaffs, maintaining the founders’ legacy of hard work and high-quality manufacturing.
