The "blade", an essencial tool for kokeshi doll making, was featured in NHK's news programme "Hot Gunma 630".
The soft, curved surfaces of kokeshi dolls are carved out by blades.
This is a story about blades that you don't normally get to see.
The programme is available as a video stream until 17 March and also as an article.
