Shungo Ogata is a young, talented blacksmith who works among the masters in Takefu Knife Village, Fukui, Japan. He began his career as a blade sharpener and has recently begun producing very high quality knives of his own. His background in sharpening allows him to focus on the geometry of the blade, creating extremely thin blades that slice with ease.
