土佐打刃物

Tosa Forged Blades

金工品

天正18年(1590年)土佐一国を総地検した、長宗我部地検帳に、399軒の鍛冶屋がいたことが記されています。土佐打刃物の本格的な隆盛は、江戸時代初期土佐藩による、元和改革(1621年)から始まります。

Records show that at the end of the 16th century there were some 400 smiths at work in Tosa. While they were skilled in the making of the samurai sword, they also seem to have made sickles and knives at the request of local farmers. Subsequently, with the promotion of forestry and the development of new fields in the area, bladed tools for agriculture and forestry were made in large quantities and a production center for forged goods came into being.

土佐和紙

Tosa Paper

和紙

平安時代に書かれた「延喜式(えんぎしき)」に献上品として土佐和紙の名が出ています。

Various kinds of paper for calligraphy, paper crafts, art papers and specialist papers to be used in the home are made under a name, which is mentioned in connection with paper presented to the court in an official Heian period (794-1185) document, the Engishiki. This has led people to believe that Tosa was already a center for the production of paper during this period.
