**What is Misuya Needle?**
Flexible elasticity is required for the needle’s movement when sewing. It must also be supple yet strong at the waist. Of course, if the needle breaks or bends easily, it won’t be easy to sew. Stiffness has the disadvantage of being brittle, and flexibility has the burden of being bendy. It is a big problem to combine opposite properties in a single item.

We found a solution to this problem in the quenching method, which has become a traditional needle that continues to this day. Chubei’s Misuya needles can be said to have firmness, tenacity, and the rich luster of smoked silver.

The needle holes of the Misuya needles are made as close to a regular circle as possible. The needle craftsman’s skill is demonstrated by how large a hole he can make in the thin steel body. The inside of these small needle holes are then polished to a smooth, round form. The larger the needle hole, the easier it is to thread. The round shape also prevents the yarn tips from splitting when threading.

The round needle hole also means that the thread is uniform in thickness, so there is no play of thread and the thread does not kink during needlework. The needle hole and thread are just barely touching, but the inside of the needle hole is polished smooth to prevent thread breakage.

Misuya needles are the one of the top of Japanese craftsmanship.
