My name is Tetsuro Izumitani, I was born in Japan and moved to Australia in 1994. I used to be a furniture maker. I became interested in tools and started collecting them more than 10 years ago.
All the items are imported from all over Japan. I go to Japan about twice a year to buy more stock. I have a warehouse based in Ocean Grove with all my items.
I restore and sharpen the hand tools and other antiques.
Tetsu is shortened from my name. Tetsu also means iron, which inspired the logo to be the kanji for iron.
