I did not have any part in this, nor is my skill anywhere closer, but this man makes great metalwork– usually tsuba (handguards) for Japanese swords.
This is a video of him making a tsuba.
Mr. Hallam has a book in the works (thanks to Kickstarter) about the history of metal craft in Japan, the metallurgy over time, and the techniques and tools used. While it’s not out yet, I will let you all know how it is.
