  • About the Artisan

    Fube, Shimane Prefecture

    Artist/Workshop - Izumo ironware - "Kouji-Koubou Hiromitsu Blacksmith Workshop"

    • Current workshop >100 years old. Tools are custom made for purpose by themselves – older tools are larger so they need to have to start from nodular “hagane” steel; today, hagane is provided in rods, requiring finer tools
    • Handcrafting steel requires tremendous physical effort – up to 40 beats are required in a single session
    • Alternation of heating and water cooling steel (eg for lamp bases) causes spalling off of the surface of steel – results in a smooth, even finish as impurities are removed
