    This is a short documentary movie that shows the whole process of how John Neeman Tools are being hand crafted. "It is a tragedy of the first magnitude that millions of people have ceased to use their hands as hands. Nature has bestowed upon us this great gift which is our hands. If the craze for machinery methods continues, it is highly likely that a time will come when we shall be so incapacitated and weak that we shall begin to curse ourselves for having forgotten the use of the living machines given to us by God."

          • Kaala- Printer contraption that runs on soot from pollution

            Black printing ink is one of the most consumed products in the industry. Most of this printing ink is produced in factories with complex chemical procedures. Companies like HP/Canon make 70 percent of their profits by selling these cartridges at 400% margin. Just a minor itch that led me to build something cool from observations arising from nostalgia of the days back in India. There's so much soot/pollution around us, esp. in crowded cities. What if the same could be repurposed to generate ink for printers? Rubbing alcohol+oil substrate+soot= lowtech non-uniform ink . We built a contraption that supplies the ink to HP C6602 inkjet cartridge interfaced with Arduino turning it into ~ 100dpi print platform. Technical details on anirudh.me/2014/02/kaala-soot-printer/ The system does work, but the ink is super low-tech, and okay for basic printing.

              Sounds of the woodshop, that is, a.k.a.: the quiet edition. Sit back and chill to the sounds of sharp blades and smooth wood. This is a collection of clips documenting the steps and sounds involved at most every stage of the process of hand making a traditional aikuchi tanto mount from reclaimed driftwood. The project began as a large piece of Nootka Cypress driftwood and is worked entirely by hand through each step, employing tools and techniques as they would have been used centuries ago when this style of knife was developed in Japan. The blade is made from century-old shear steel from a horse drawn carriage spring and based on design elements of the 13th century Aizu Shintogo tanto: islandblacksmith.ca/2014/04/aizu-shintogo-kunimitsu-tanto-kata/. Read more about the process of making this work on the photo essay page: islandblacksmith.ca/process/making-aikuchi-tanto-kuro-urushi-koshirae/ The next step will be to finish the surface with natural urushi lacquer.
