Applying the technique of making nails, other metal-tools from farming amenities to other varieties knives, scissors, saws, hatchets were presented.
At first, making nail was side job of the farmers. When trading with other area increased, full-time manufacturers were established. They were all independent proprietors. The industry was founded by individuals. Governors or big capitalists or glorious hero were not needed. Micro business establishments, with individuals or family members, were our traditional style. Independent proprietary spirit dominated in this area.
After the World-War II, metal-tools production transformed into mass production in factories. Many homemade style workshops disappeared.
My great-grandparents and their son, my grandfather, were doing metalworks in their home. They suspended it about 70 years ago.
Some independent workshops are still retained. They have survived hard time. Now, their products are valued as beautiful crafts. Their works are exported to Europe, America, Australia and some Asian countries.
