Hattori Masanaga: Tsuba, Kozuka and Menuki Artisan.

Hello everyone!

I found the following documentary on Hattori Masanaga:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8ibRhcEevc

The subtitles are simplistic, but you can infer much of what is being discussed... but... it would be nice to understand what is being said!

best regards,
Albert

Fantastic, thanks for the find, Albert!

It's great to see another set of skilled hands at work, watching this "Ford" guy I keep hearing about can get kind of tedious after a while :grin:

Fellows,

Did you see the part where he transcribes the image to the metal via a small punch? He just tapped his way up the line. I'm going to have to give that a try. There is a ton of info on that video; you just have to watch it carefully!

Yeps, Ford posted that methode as well here http://www.followingtheironbrush.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=537 ;)

The person in the video is going like a highspeed train but when you try one time you will find out it will be hard to move at that speed :biggrin: I found it pretty hard to tap a consistent (flowing) line but guess it's just a matter of practicing a lot..
