The crafting process [Fishboning tweezers]
Even Mr. Kurata who is skilled meister can make about ten pairs of tweezers per day at most. While adjusting the thickness with sense of his eyes and fingers, he completes a work called "Edo handmade tweezers" through 30 or more process.
He also inherits skillful way of fingerwork.
(1) Selection of material, hammering.
The 18-8 stainless steel bar of 3 milimeters thick that has rust resistant is used for the material.
both ends of the bar are hammered at the beginning.
Then it is hammered carefully while it is turned upside down front and back to have spring in the middle. The process is to "eliminate the core of the material". This requires power adjustment skill.
It is hammered further and becomes to smooth surface.
(2)Punching, sanding, deburring, polishing.
The material that has been beaten-out is die-cut and a cross section and edge are sanded carefully and remove rough part called burr. This work makes smooth texture. Then it is polished with sand,cloth or rinen.
(3) Warpage adjusting, inscription, readjusting, nipping parts making, bending.
The warpage of the material is adjusted with his original machine.
Then a registered trademark "Yoshiyuki Kurata"is inscribed on it.
After the warpage readjusting, a pair of nipping parts is made.
Finally it is bent at the center and the form is adjusted.
(4)Surface shining, teeth(nipping parts)sanding, teeth adjustment, grinding
Using buff of 4 types (sand, linen, yarn, cloth)makes smooth surface.
Then the teeth parts catching a hair are sanded with files of three kinds of roughness (rough, medium, fine).
After confirming the resilience of the spring and shape, and a pair of teeth is adjusted to fit close.
The nipping faces of teeth parts are ground with a grind stone and finally a pair of tweezers is completed.
