Superior Japanese Hand Tools for Woodworking, Kitchen, Gardening and Grooming

About Us

Like the carefully selected handful of toolmakers we represent, Suzuki-ya is dedicated to bringing fine handmade Japanese tools to those who require a higher standard of quality for their professional and personal use.

Originally from the island of Honshu, Japan, we have been based in Berkeley, California for the past 20 years.

Once a year, we travel to Japan in order to start and maintain relationships with our tool makers, tour their small factories and shops, and, of course, look for new high quality Japanese hand tools and materials to sell at Suzuki-ya.
