STORY 35

A black skinned knife?

To manipulate fire, to work on iron.
With its origins in sword making,
these craftsmen work within a tradition in blacksmith techniques
that make blades by hammering together iron and steel.
This is the so-called “total fire method” that was once used to make Japanese swords.
It is based on heating iron by flame, and hammering it into shape.
The form that emerges from these hammer hits is a “hand struck knife”,
and it can be admired just to look at.
Not only this, the cutting blade is strong and durable,
and once experienced it is hard to return to lesser knives.
