Japanese Sword & Knife Open House
Our visiting instructor for the Japanese Sword Smithing Class will be showcasing some of his work to the public and will give a short demonstration on his artistic process on the afternoon of July 5th at 2pm at:
Les Forges de Montreal
This event will be held in the afternoon on the last day of a 10 day intensive class that Fusataro will be instructing. Some of the results from that effort will be entering their final stages of refinement. We ask that you please not disturb any working students.
At this event, Fusataro will also unveil his latest effort; which is the launch of his knife making venture.
He is creating knives for everyone’s kitchen. Although they are extremely high performance, as with his swords, they are simply intended for the people who want to use a great knife everyday. At this event, we will invite you to view and hold some of his performance culinary knives.
We will have a limited number of knives on hand. Some will be available for purchase. We will post more specific information about the knives very soon, but please join us to see them in person and discover the significance of this event for yourself.
