We took our friend and filmmaker Kevin Kossawan to Japan with us to just film blacksmithing, we ended up making a documentary about Japanese kitchen knife making. https://vimeo.com/ondemand/48004
It is unique to use a handmade knife and, in our world, to even have anything handmade. I love that I get to see the actual craftsman make the knives that I use and strange to say it, but I feel more connected to them after this. Strange because I know it's just a knife, but after having it for long enough it becomes much more than just a knife.
