Film: Study the Old to Know the New
Last summer Komori~san and a talented crew came to the island and spent a couple of days getting footage in the forge and of the final assembly of a tanto. The theme is that a true and accurate understanding of the past is an important step toward a good future. 温故知新 (on ko chi shin) is an expression that most directly translates to, “study the old to know the new”.
