Interview With 3 Young Japanese Blacksmiths

by eiga



In this video knifenerd Naoto Fujimoto interviews three young up blacksmiths from different regions of Japan. Each of these blacksmiths is forging their own way into the knife maker history books with their own approach to the art of knife making. Japanese knife makers spend years learning to make knives in different shapes such as gyuto, yanagiba, deba, denka, nakiri or petty knives. Each shape has its own special purpose. We hope you enjoy this interview with Go Yoshizawa, Manaka and Miyazaki.
