For their season premiere, Nova is taking a page from Hiro Nakamura. On Tuesday October 9 at 8pm ET/PT, Nova will be delving into the "Secrets of the Samurai Sword". The episode spends the entire hour going through the entire six month process of the creation of a sword and the different steps fifteen different craftsman take in making sure the sword is perfect. It is an entirely fascinating look at what seems to be an excruciatingly slow process. Not only does the episode spend time with Gassan Sadatoshi, the swordsmith, it also delves into the actual smelting of the ore and charcoal that is used to make the steel.
