[HD video below] The katana, a sword traditionally used by samurai warriors of feudal Japan, is widely regarded as one of the sharpest swords in the world - but what has that got to do with nail clippers?!
Exclusive HD video interview with Tatsuki Mizunuma of Suwada Blacksmith Works.
Based in Niigata, Japan we talk to Tatsuki-san about what makes Suwada nail clippers so special and why the company was exhibiting at the JATA Tourism Expo in Tokyo.
With prices ranging from JPY 5,000 (US$ 50) all the way up to JPY 60,000 (US$ 590) we ask what Suwada nail clippers are made of, and what makes them so special.
We talk about the free tour available at the factory, whether any documentation is in English, how far the factory is from Tokyo and whether guests can customise the nail clippers they buy and even have a go at making their own.
All this and much, much more in the video below.
