Foundation of sword making in Kamakura started about 700 years ago when swordsmiths were invited from all over Japan by Regent Hojo.

Goro-Nyudo Masamune, the founder of the Soshu-den, was born in Kyoto as a son of Awara-guchi swordsmith Yukimitsu. He improved the traditional style of smithing to better fit the trend and how the Katana was used and created unique Shoshu-den style. Swords from his family are well known as national treasure nowadays. Masamune family flourished as Tokugawa clan's preferred smiths.
After entering modern era, Masamune workshop started manufacturing cutleries and other iron crafts with the sharpness of traditional Katana.
In Japan, from ancient time the swords and knives are said to cut open the way (to the future). So it is a popular gift for a souvenir or a special occasion.
