As everyone knows about there were Samurai (BUSHI) in Japanese history. There were also Japanese
Sword Smith who made Japanese Sword that is
Samurai's main weapon and symbol. According to
history, about 700 years ago, the master Sword Smith
Motoshige chose Seki (Now it is one of biggest knife capital in
this world.) and moved to Seki for making Swords. Main
reason to choose Seki was Seki had a lots of natural
materials for making swords. During Muromachi Era
(1338-1573) there were over 300 SwordSmiths working in
Seki. Throughout Japan, the highest quality of swords were
recognized as having originating in Seki.People called
Now generation in Seki City Japan, still the technique
and way of making Japanese Swords are handing over for cutlery industry.
And Seki Knife industry has been well known as knife capital in this world.
Sword Smith "Fujiwara Kanefusa" is one of a few Sword Smiths
who exists in this generation. They have been making real
Japanese Swords with over 700 years traditional technique.
The scene of their sword making are very interesting. We can see
their works during Seki Knife Festival (middle of
October). I hope this traditional technique and Soul last for future.
