Even today, few of us realize the importance of the work of the seeder in the art of knife making. Without the sharpener, the knife would simply be a well-forged paperweight. The work of the sharpener is like that of a sculptor, to carefully remove the useless material until a masterpiece is revealed. Few knife sharpeners can create masterpieces like Tadokoro-san.
Tadokoro-san is a famous knife sharpener from Tosa, with 25 years of experience in his field. He began his career when he was only 15 years old and learned much of his skills from Morihiro-san, considered Sakai’s best knife sharpener. His incredible talent and attention to detail are evident when inspecting his knives.
