Kazuyuki Takayama is the sixth generation of Sayashi's family, which has continued for generations since the Edo period, and has been praised and respected by many who are involved in Japanese swords with his outstanding sword technique. It is no exaggeration to say that the ingenious sword fittings, created with an insatiable spirit of inquiry and unique ideas, have opened up the future of the sword world.
In addition, Takayama's lifework is to restore the historically important sword fittings, and he is also making efforts to hand down various techniques.
This work traces Kazuyuki Takayama's achievements so far, and includes a documentary that captures the actual manufacturing process of the sword fittings, as well as a commentary on the work by himself. This is a valuable video collection that introduces about 50 works.
