Oyana Factory, located in Seki, produces a wide array of products from razors and scalpels to other kinds of bladed tools. Masahiro Otsuka, manager of KAI’s blade sales department, boasts: ‘We have received a lot of requests from various industries to make special blades. We were once asked to make an incredibly sharp blade for the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency.’ The Beauty Biz Sales Department sells T-shaped razors to hotels, inns, spas, and golf courses. Rina Uno explains: ‘Additional orders come from all over the country – especially right before a long holiday. So it is really important to coordinate with the production team. I enjoy mountain climbing. Mountain climbing also requires good planning.’ Tateki Kato, who is in charge of selling to new customers, adds: ‘We must be flexible enough so that we can respond to customers’ requests for different kinds of razor blades, different handle colors, different kinds of packaging, etc.’ Kato enjoys going to spas. Blades are important in everyday life. KAI employees, who enjoy their work and their hobbies, fully support KAI and its products.
