Creating the Key-Quest: Part 1

Hello, everyone! I am Hiroki Tsukada, CEO of Tsukada Co., Ltd.
Through the following video, I would like to show you how our Key-Quests are manufactured.
The first step is machining. We start off by setting a pair of Key-Quests on a large machine.

Then, we gradually carve out the string cutting section to create a blade.
See this movie for details!

This is all done while lubricant oil is being poured over the Key-Quests.
The blade is 4mm (0.16") deep, so this process requires great precision and plenty of fine tuning.

Our pair of Key-Quests now have blades.

I will introduce the handcrafting process to you in our next update!
