Director: Hideo Kitaoka Traditional Craftsman Born: March 23, 1950 I was born on March 23, 1950. It has been over 30 years since I succeeded our family business of pounding knives. I have been doing my best to learn skills a little bit at a time from watching how my father worked. There has been many times when I felt frustrated, but it is fun and really enjoyable to make 10 or 20 knives with the same shape by pounding a hammer on red-hot iron lump. I think thatís what the mind of craftsman is. Traditional handicraftsmen requires us to acquire one skill at a time and we have to learn it with our hands and body. I have realized how difficult to keep traditional handicraftsmen. I make Deba and Japanese knives mainly, and I would like to try my best to make amazingly sharp and ďcut that-makes-you-feel-greatĒ knives as the 3rd generation.
