When asked, what is a master craftsman, I have to revert back to the Japanese artisians who make swords, drums and other craft items. I can only compare one to a true master. I believe a Japanese master, devotes his entire life in the perfection of a skill, one that he can repeat day-in and day-out without thinking. Mistakes are not allowed. Any error would result in starting again from scratch. This would be perfection at it’s extreme, but in our non-Japanese society, a master would probably be one that is aclaimed as such by one or a group of masters who are in a position to judge. I am not a master, so I am not in a position to judge. All I know is he can do better work than I can. He may be a master in my eyes, but maybe not to others.
