How Nambu Tekki Is Made

Building the Mold

The mold is made based on the design drawing, so that the desired shape will be formed by casting molten iron into the mold. To make a mold, special molding sand is packed inside a cylindrical wooden frame. First the outer layer is packed firmly with rough sand, then finer sand is added, gradually forming the shape.
