Biology of Metal: Metal Craftsmanship in Tsubame-Sanjo 

The Tsubame-Sanjo region in northern Japan is known for its metalworking factories and skilled craftspeople. It produces much of Japan’s cutlery today and is responsible for developing the metal-polishing techniques used in making the iPod, plus the area boasts a centuries-old copperware tradition. It produces all manner of specialised knives, precision machine parts, tools, kitchenware, and agricultural goods, and its people are central to the story.
