TO THE POINT - THE CUTLASSES' TALE


Marvel as our team of five artisan Kamasorie blacksmiths work three furnaces to forge an assorted collection of car parts into cutlasses.

See a bellows assembled with wood and clay soon raising the temperature to hot hot hot as our smithies work up a sweat fashioning our humble leaf springs into fine cutlasses for our farmers to thrust.

Two smithies grip the shaft of steel tight as two more hammer away before honing then hardening our blade in the heat of the furnace.

Meanwhile, a part trunk of solid wood is quickly shaved and expertly carved whittling wood away shaping smoothly to fit the hand.

And as things cool down our smithy drills holes through with fire - an ancient technique - all the better for riveting together a sturdy stubby hilt that fits the palm tight as tight can be, something we know our lady and gentlemen farmers will appreciate season after season.

The artisan Kamasorie smithies proudly show off their expertly crafted cutlasses bound for Hope Sakuma's upcoming farmer field school.
