Akio and Michio Tasai
The master smith Akio Tasai has earned himself a legendary reputation among Japan's metalworkers, especially due to his Mokume technique. His son Michio Tasai is following in the footsteps of his father, acquiring his Japanese sword-making license - the most prestigious accolade among smiths - at the tender age of 38 after eight years of study under the master sword smith Takano Yukimitsu. They use Blue Paper Steel, specifically manufactured according to their needs, to manufacture the cutting layer of their tools, as this particular steel remains easy to sharpen despite its hardness.
