There are lots of people out there selling things with a wooden “handmade” look. This is because laser engraving, which is used to make most of the images you see on this site, only looks like hand-engraving when it’s done by hand.
The hand engravers who do it for us are skilled craftsmen and women, not slaves. They have the same kind of pride in their work as an artisan does. They use the same tools and have similar skills. They produce products which are every bit as handsome and durable as those which might be produced by a master woodworker. Hand-engraved woodcuts can be hundreds of years old and show no signs of wear; our engraved woodcuts will age just as well.
Our products retain all the warmth and beauty of real wood–and they last longer than anything else out there. If you want to carry on the proud tradition of samurai swordsmiths while also having a product that looks fresh, clean and new, then give us a call or send us an e-mail! We’re here to help you celebrate your heritage while you put your best face forward.

One of the most famous artworks in the world, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” by Katsushika Hokusai, is a woodblock print. It is so iconic that we forget it is a print, an engraving on wood. It has tremendous movement and personality.
Tokeiji Temple in Japan has a wall with over 900 woodblock prints by artists of all generations. The wall shows the evolution of the artform from its first use to today’s modern prints.
Woodblock prints are one of the most popular forms of traditional Japanese art. Nowadays they are used mostly for making posters, but they were also commonly used for book illustrations and paintings. It was created in the 17th century by a Japanese artist named Hishikawa Moronobu, who discovered this technique through experimentation with different materials and techniques. He cut down on costs by using only one block instead of cutting each illustration into separate pieces like most artists did at this time. When he found that he could carve the illustrations into blocks, he began shifting his focus to creating artworks out of them instead of just illustrations for books and essays. He used many different kinds of subjects for his works including animals and plants, as well as things that were in
