This is a promotional video that Takefu produced which shows many of the guys we use in about 8 different lines on the site. All the Masakage stuff, Kaneshige, Saji, Anryu, Yaui, Kamo etc are all from this area and work within the Takefu co-operative.
I really liked the part at the end. Passing along the knowledge and skills of this type of work is key to keeping it alive.

Yeah they're really into having school kids come in and show them the knife making process. They have a whole education center set up to do classes for adults and kids and it's a great way to promote the craft.
