Short film release: 温故知新

Last summer Komori~san and a talented crew came to the island and spent a couple of days getting footage in the forge and of the final assembly of a tanto. Take a look at these beautiful stills, his latest creation is set to go live this week!

A true and accurate understanding of the past is an important step toward a good future. 温故知新 (on ko chi shin) is an expression that most directly translates to, “study the old to know the new”.
