The "Nachi" Name
In 1929, the Emperor Showa made a tour of the Kansai district to inspect industries as part of the encouragement of domestic production, and personally inspected a FUJIKOSHI hacksaw blade that was on display as an example of an outstanding domestic product at the Osaka Prefecture Office. Overjoyed at the honor of entertaining the Emperor's special attention, Kohki Imura decided to name his product "Nachi" after the name of the latest naval cruiser to be made in Japan, the very same vessel that the Emperor was sailing on for his tour. (The Nachi name itself comes from "Kumano-Nachi-Taisha," the Grand Shrine, that is origin of Japan. It expresses strong entrepreneurial will.)
