5. Cutter Knife <C3>

This compact, yet full-fledged cutter knife is the shortest of its kind in the industry (as of March 31, 2015, surveyed by KOKUYO S&T Co., Ltd.), in which standard small snap-blades (9 mm wide) can be used. With the three Cs of colorful, cute, and compact as the concept, the product comes in pop colors that conventional cutter knifes do not offer.

6. Field Notebooks (Level Book, Transit Book, Sketch Book)

Our field notebooks won the Long Life Award for its robust specifications suited for outdoor use, such as a hard cover. We have been selling this product (in almost the same design) since 1959. Upon the establishment of the Survey Act in 1949, the field notebooks were developed to cater to the increasing surveying needs.
