    Echizen Uchihamono at Kajitsu in Manhattan

    For anyone who can make it to NYC:
    From November 29 to December 1st, Echizen Uchihamono with be coming to the US with 8 of their blacksmiths for the first time ever. They will be showcasing their work and demonstrating knife making techniques as well as answering any questions from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm every day. The event will be held at Kajitsu in Manhattan at 125 East 39th street (39th and Lexington).
    I'm looking forward to seeing them along with any KKF members who can attend

    I'll post an update with a complete list of the blacksmiths who will be coming.

    See you then
    Jon

    I'll be in the building the whole time but I'll be busy with lunch and dinner service. I'll do my best to be there as much as I can

    Some of the blacksmiths will include: Kamo Shiro, Kurosaki Yu and Kato Hiroshi who make knives under eponymous brands as well as Nomura san- who makes the Takeshi Saji brand knives. There will definitely be more I'll post any new info as soon as it's confirmed

    wow that is a huge show! I think this is one of the rare chances to see the echizen masters without spending the effort of going to takefu (and you are not likely to meet them all in takefu anyway!)

    Something that you just can't afford to miss!

    They will be demonstrating sharpening, and some other knife making techniques-yes
