This past summer, #Knifewear brought their handcrafted Japanese knives to Vancouver for the very first time. We were fortunate enough to work with them and host the pop-up at our flagship storefront. We also got to meet chef-owner Kevin Kent, who amongst other things is the Executive Producer behind the Springhammer documentary.
We asked Kevin to screen the movie while he was in town but at that time it was submitted to the Edmonton International Film Festival and he could not show it. Good news came earlier this month when it was announced that Springhammer is an official selection at this year's festival.
This documentary about Japanese blacksmithing beautifully captures an art many of us would otherwise never see. Have a look below and here's hoping that Springhammer will be showing in Vancouver soon after tonight's premiere.
