Japanese metal techniques featured in YouTube video

Metal workers and jewelry artists will want to take a look at two short documentary films on YouTube showcasing classical Japanese metal artist Ford Hallam as he recreates a piece of decorative metalwork.

The film by Brad Schaffer deals with the fittings of a 19th century Japanese sword with a focus on tsuba, the sword guard.

More information on the Japanese techniques may be found at the Iron Brush website listed below.
