How Japanese Knives are Made

Over 700 years ago, a katana master from Kyoto was searching for the perfect place to make katanas, found that Echizen had the best water and ingredients, and set up shop. Nowadays the most sought after blades in the city are chef knives. See how they’re made when we visit Ryusen Hamono, which hand makes the knives that are a Japanese traditional craft.

Thanks to Ryusen Hamono for letting me film. You can check out their site at
