Let Your Brain Take a Nap While This Guy Builds a Kickass Japanese Utility Knife

What a day it has been. Time to go into an elective waking coma while this guy makes a crazy-looking knife with skill and precision.

Apparently kiridashi—the shape of knife being made here—are often used for pruning bonsai because they have lots of leverage near the tip. Doesn’t that seem nice? Just hanging out with a tiny tree... Almost as cool a being a tiny tree. That’s the dream, man.


Put on your favorite relaxing jams and zone out. If you pass out at your desk, then, bonus: there will be a sweet knife waiting for you when you wake up.
