How are Japanese knives made? With the same techniques used to craft katana (samurai swords), modern Japanese knives are some of the highest quality in the world. They don't break or bend, they can slice through anything like butter and they're a beauty to behold.

This video was filmed at Hirata Blacksmiths (平田鍛刀場) on the outskirts of Tokyo. Sukehira Hirata and Nodoka Hirata are a married couple who craft not only Japanese blades, but blades made of the rarest steel in Japan. In fact, this is one of 3 workshops in the whole country, still producing the legendary Tamahagane steel (玉鋼).

“As sharp as a samurais katana...”? Please shut up you sound like an idiot. Cut little analogies like that are for fools that are unable to convey a message to someone who is not an expert in a particular. Like the stupid stories of Christ😂. “Yes lord, NOOOOOW I understand why shooting someone in the face is not very nice, I would have never guessed had I not been told your dumb little story!”😉👍🏽..... wow, where’d that come from. You alright?.....ya I guess😒

For the love of Inari. Someone, please get this guy a bench vise so he is not using the angle grinder and holding the material in his hand.

It took so much works for just one knife. I wonder how much is the price of that masterpiece.
What a pretty baby! 🤗

Not gonna lie the swordsmith and his wife, even for that brief moment of introduction seemd so professionally poised I thought the baby was about to introduce itself 🤣. But me a 36 year old is very interested in the technique and I can definitely see the importance of the process and why it's held in such a high regard to those that respect the craft over the money

I was in university in Tokyo 20 years ago, the number of registered Japanese swordsmiths had already fallen from 300 to 188 since 1989; it would've been amazing to do an apprenticeship, but they used to last 5 years and were completely unpaid. These days a lot of those skilled old guys will have retired or passed on but he says the number is back up to 300.

It’s funny how the narrator states tamahagane is one of the finest forms of steel a blade can be made from. Tamahagane is crudely cast iron. Kawagane and shingane are the materials you make using tamahagane. These are the materials you want to make a blade from.

Hungarian - A kitartás végeredménye: Egy késpenge. De az, hogy mibe kerűlt? Senki sem tudja felértékelni. Egy maréknyi fémporból egy fényes acélpenge. Ha az útszélén találnád, lehet hogy odébb rúgnád. De csak nézd végig, hogyan lett a szürke porból nemes acélpenge. Szenvedély, önfeláldozás, önmegtagadás nélkül nem születhetett volna meg ez a parányi remekmű.

What an exceptional artist. I never saw that kind of manufacturing before and it is truly amazing. What an honor it must be to be able to get hold on to one of those masterpieces. I especially like the constant and complete awareness of the moment of all the people involved in the creation of this knife. Truly inspiring.

Ah, the good old traditional power hammer, sander and angle grinder. No, just joking, it'd be painfully slow to do all that manually. Still, it's not the tools, it's the one with the skill who can do things.

What ever you call that steel, 1000 years ago, some Vikings were using Efburge swords, made of what we now call crucible steel. A very high purity steel no one expected the ancient sword smiths were capable of creating, and the technique were lost for 800+ years and rediscovered around the 1800s. I am surprised of all people, the Japanese are still manually pounding the steel, I thought they would have a mechanical hammer by now. I am sure they can automate much of that process without losing any quality.

"Traditionally women are not accepted, but we don't care about old fashion beliefs" proceeds by pounding metal in fire for days to make a knife after 15 years of hard work, every day... the irony is burning hot there! lol Also I have japenese knives, I also have german knives... and, yeah they're both pretty good! lol not saying they're wasting their time or anything but you know... maybe? :D
