12th Annual Japanese Food & Restaurant Show @ Mutual Trading Co, LA, Calif., Oct 22, 2000:
Every year, Hocho (Japanese for "kitchen knife") Master Hirano from Tokyo's Tsukiji Masamoto knife company gives a demo and lectures on knife-sharpening and care, then he personalizes the knives that customers purchased by skillfully etching their names on the knives with only a hammer and a chisel. The engaging demo and seminars are always a popular crowd-pleaser. Mr. Hirano is an extraordinary craftsman, and this video is in real-time. The speed at which Mr. Hirano works is not enhanced. He is really super-fast, with a delicate touch and an eye for perfection!
Knife safety point: Please watch carefully as Mr. Hirano calmly demonstrates how to avoid being hurt by a falling deba knife by taking a step back and away @35':57".
