The city was then destroyed and devastated, ruler finally decided to surrender after years long fighting and offered his life but asked to save people of Miki in exchange. New ruler was so impressed by honorable surrender and accepted the offer and even promised to rebuild the city for the people of Miki. The new ruler then gathered blacksmiths and craftsmen from all over Japan and exempted taxed to help rebuild the city. And this was the start of the tool making history.
