Japan's remaining swordsmiths

"Korehira Watanabe is one of the last remaining Japanese swordsmiths. He has spent 40 years honing his craft in an attempt to recreate Koto, a type of sword that dates back to the Heian and Kamakura periods (794-1333 AD). No documents remain to provide context for Watanabe’s quest, but he believes he has come close to creating a replica of this mythical samurai sword."

This is pretty incredible
 
Wow...  I would not have thought this possible.  Amazing!

I overlapped with Bill Freeman when in grad school, and he's been doing this kind of amazing technical and creative work for years.

Take the time to read this. It's important to understand what went on here and how the government and financial institutions are in bed.
