Tetsuya Okada quote:

“The artisan bag makers I worked for sharpened knives many times a day.
The teacher was left-handed so I set up a slightly shorter table on the left side of my workbench and placed the whetstone on it.
If it gets a bit dull, sharpen it several times. I remember that.
Not everyone can do that, so we ask you to use super steel blue paper, which has an edge that sticks to leather and has a long blade.
There are two types of surface finishes, hammer and satin finish.

After consulting with a blacksmith, trial production was repeated for several years. Actually, for a while, it was completed and sold, but after that I was not satisfied with the type of mass production and stopped selling.
I asked the blacksmith to re-prototype and honestly it was a tough time.
I asked him later, but he went through how to do it and had a lot of trouble, especially with the backing of the sheet.
I feel the attitude of working tirelessly and patiently in getting things done, and the commitment to work. “
