Once considered divine, the centuries-old craft of sword-making in Taiwan is dying. But one individual is doing his best to keep the ancient tradition alive. Al Jazeera's Steve Chao travelled to the town of Cheding to meet the country's last professional sword-maker, who at 65, hopes to find a "worthy apprentice" to pass his legacy on to. Aljazeera's Steve Chao reports. Shot and edited by Matthew Allard.
