Going to dinner with many of them was really the best part. It's always fun to sit down and have a big meal and drink some beers with share some laughs with friends. I tried out my broken Japanese on them which they all enjoyed. hahaha

I can't imagine how many beers it would take for me to speak Japanese.

This would be the best part to me. I can speak many languages after enough beer. :ugeek:

This is Kurosaki working a stamping press. One of the guys caught his thumb in this or some other machine (I wasn't sure exactly how it happened) and it was the size of a large egg. They were all teasing him about it. Tough guys... :)

This building is adjacent to the main factory and gallery. It's their education facility. The give classes in here all the time for school kids and adults. It's
better equipped than most small blacksmiths I visited. This is one way they get young kids interested in the profession and it works.

Here I am grinding on the big wheel. Kurosaki's older brother is my teacher. :)

Ooooh, that's awesome. My little rocks are so inadequate. Thinking about moving to Japan to take up knife finishing, Mark?
