Seki Cutlery Festival
関市刃物まつり（Seki-shi Hamono Matsuri）
Celebrate autumn with the biggest event in Seki, the City of Blades, has to offer
The marketplace that is opened along the main road consists of roughly 50 different producers who set up shop in tents and sell a variety of items, including kitchen knives, scissors, pocket knives and other blades, all at outrageously reasonable prices.
Watch the sparks fly during a traditional Japanese sword forging demonstration, take a look and see what you can find at the outdoor knife show, or catch some masters practicing their sword skills at some of the many events being held around town during the festival.
