Pounding Sounds of Knife making around, Phuc Sen - Vietnam.

The steel horse I ride bangs and pops rounding the corner to this town. This is what I see for I stop to check the engine. It was off in the distance, it was a sound like no other, I had to go and see.

With the motor cut and stopped...there is still pounding and banging. The consistent tone the constant clang...I must go see. I had to know what made this sound reverberating too and fro. Through the helmet through the noise of the steel horse, I had to know what was going on.

Another picture before I do.
There is just so much to see and do, that the pictures are taken but the memories are made.
I come across a town that makes these hand made knives. Each house a factory for the pounding delight of the tool of the trade, to be traded for everything that could be needed.

A hatchet in a way and able to go the distance it says.
Something that should be bought for the need and use will not be forgot.
But fro tight now ill have to cut it short here.
More to come as the next slice will have more.

Thanks for having a look at the photos from this place. The town is Phuc Sen Village in the northern province of Cao Bang, a town where the sound pounds sharp beauty in Vietnam. The photos were from the streets, Check out Pinmapple for my map.
