History of Japanese Camisoli

a kamisoli that has been handed down from the continent as a harness

It is said that Kamisoli was introduced to Japan in 538, the reign of Emperor Kinmei (the 29th). Originally, at the same time as Buddhism, priests were handed down the shaving hair, or "shaving their hair", under strict Buddhist precepts.The name of 'shaved hair' is also derived from shaving her hair.

This'hairy shaving' is a malleable blade, with a flat blade thin and flat, and it is not very clear.Only the monk shaved his hair, and the rest of the man's hair was blunted with blanks.In the Sengoku period (period of warring states), the custom of shaving their hair was created not only by monks but also in the samurai hierarchy. The boys shaved the moon, and the girls used a casino to get their eyebrows and collar feet.

It is said that the first person to use a lather as a general was Nobunaga ODA, who was a busho (Japanese military commander) in the Sengoku Period (Period of Warring States), and he used a folding western-style reza that had been in the sea with the Portuguese civilization.In the Edo period, a Japanese kamisori with a single edge using techniques of Japanese swords was generalized as a shaving tool.Western CamisoliReza.)It was after the civilization and enlightenment of the Meiji period.

Camisoli was a very expensive tool, so it would be called modern times for the ordinary people to get their hands.

In the section of "The History of the Hamono" in Sakai City Hall, Osaka Prefecture, a person named Chobei KAMISAI was very good at making Kamissori at the place called Ayanomachi Nakahama in Sakai City, Sakai, in the days of Hideyoshi.
In the Edo period, Sakai remembers the name of Sakai-no-tsu in the production of Kamisori and Kakocho throughout the country.

After that, however, Sakai declined and the production of Kamisori was given to Seki no seki (present Seki City, Gifu Prefecture) in Mino Province.Seki was the production area of a famous sword competing with Nagafune in Bizen from the Middle Ages, but since the demand for swords decreased sharply since the Edo period, it was a production area such as kamisori, tsucho, nokogiri, and kama (a Japanese sword).In addition, in addition to this, the production of swords and armour started from around the beginning of Genpei, Banshu Miki (present-day Miki City, Hyogo Prefecture), and from the Edo period, it was stimulated by the abnormal development of Sakai, and the production of agricultural equipment and carpenter equipment was produced, while the production of the kamisori was also produced.The tradition of tooth production has continued since the end of World War II.

In addition to this, Sanjo Echigo (Sanjo City, Niigata Prefecture) also produced farm equipment, nokoghiri, kamisori, scissary, and so on from the beginning of the Edo period, and its name was known as Sanjo Kaji.
In the Meiji period, Leather was brought to Japan from abroad, and in the Taisho period, the production of Japanese rice was also produced, and in the Taisho period, Japanese kamisori was gradually turned off, and the imports and production of the rezers became the center of the rice market.
