Japanese Sword Making


Recommended Posts

Found this video, and found it awesome and informative, so thought I'd share. I learned something.

Never seen or thought of using clay in slurry form while forging.







Edit: Oops, looks like someone already posted this video...

That is Yoshindo Yoshihara who is mukansa. He is one of the more well known Japanese smiths in the Western World because he co-wrote "The Craft the Japanese Sword" and "The Art the Japanese Sword"
