How did you become a swordsmith?
I used to like knives since I was a child. One day when I was riding the train as an adult, I happened to see an advertisement on the train for the "Shinsakuto Exhibition" held at Osaka Castle. I went to see the exhibition and it was then that I made up my mind to become a swordsmith.
What are you most particular about when making a sword?
When making a sword, I always make sure to do each step from the client's point of view.
Message to sword lovers around the world:
People come to love Japanese swords in different ways, but if you look at them from different angles, you will be able to enjoy the world of Japanese swords more deeply and more broadly.
