THE OUTDOORS ARE WAITING.
Originally operating out of a small Tokyo store front in the 1920s, we've spent over 90 years designing, manufacturing, and reinventing quality products within the outdoor recreation and sports industry. Over our long history our brand has grown to become a design and manufacturing leader in Japan, and we're now proud to bring our line of titanium cookware to our fellow outdoor adventurers in North America. Rather than giving up, we looked north to the city of Tsubame for help. Tsubame, in Japan's snowy Niigata prefecture, had over a century of history as a source of fine metal craftsmanship. After two years of R&D in close collaboration with Tsubame's modern craftsmen, we were ready for full scale production and sales into the national market. From that point on, we continued to improve our designs and streamline our manufacturing process, making our products more cost-effective and accessible each year. By the year 2000, we had developed the capability to manufacture titanium at the unprecedented thickness of 0.3mm. Compared with 0.4mm, the current industry standard, our new thickness cut down on weight by 20%.It's our goal to continue bringing you the lightest and strongest titanium cookware we can engineer so together we can cover more miles and spend more time in our great outdoors.
