Traditional industrial arts, "the Japanese sword" which became a work of art, and is going to survive the world are slightly difficult to approach and are expensive.
Kozuka Kobou studio is a genuine sword studio to make happily.
Begin work for noon and put a break, and, with guidance of a swordsmith, it is work for about 7 hours.
A lunch, drink, a change of clothes, a muscular pain, some blisters, a burn are individual payment.
I do not forget so army gloves, a towel either.
Various tools surrounded "swordsmith studio", and is very fun "making a sword" , work to be polluted, but it is not wrong to "be considerably happy", and there are cut powder of iron, soot (soot) and sweat of charcoal.
