Epic Meal Time is BACK!!!
Shibui - simplicity devoid of unnecessary elements
just saw that. that one was pretty awesome.
I always come back to this for some cleaver action.
I don't know how I found this gem, but I'm glad I did. Some of the best videos I've seen. That hammer control is absolutely ridiculous.
(Also, I've always wondered how they could do a water quench without warp, but now I know that they DO warp, and straightening is possible due to the higane/jigane construction)
Hammer control is amazing as is his tong control. Great videos thank you.
thanks for sharing those vids. the japanese really do the best stuff.
Wow, one the best forging videos I've ever seen. Amazing how close those blade are to finished shape and geometry before they ever touch a grinder.... and those scissors... omg... i've never lusted after scissors until now. I might need to take up fiber-arts just so I have a good rationalization for buying what must be a $1000 pair of shears.
