Korehira Watanabe: one of the last ancient sword makers

Korehira Watanabe is one of the last 30 ancient sword makers left in Japan. It’s a trade he’s been trying to master for the past 40 years and it’s only in the last five years that he says he’s been succeeding in capturing the craftmanship of the late Koto period (794 – 1333).
