Japanese bladesmiths

Kohei Ebuchi, a third-generation bladesmith, doesn't make samurai swords, but perhaps his ancestors did. Instead, he makes kitchen knives (houchou) in the city of Sakai, where some of the world's best — and most expensive — knives are made.

And when you read the article about Mr. Ebuchi, don't forget to check out page 2, too.
