Chokin (彫金), or Japanese metal engraving, is an art form that dates back to the 12th century. It is a labor-intensive process that involves using a variety of tools to engrave intricate designs on metal surfaces, such as copper, brass, and silver. Chokin artists use a variety of techniques, including hammering, chiseling, and etching, to create their designs.


Chokin was originally used to decorate samurai armor and weapons. However, over time, it began to be used to decorate a wide range of objects, including vases, bowls, plates, and other decorative items. Chokin is often used to depict scenes from nature, such as flowers, birds, and animals. It is also used to depict traditional Japanese symbols, such as dragons, phoenixes, and cherry blossoms.

Chokin is a highly skilled art form that requires years of training to master.


Chokin artists must have a deep understanding of metalworking techniques and a keen eye for detail. Chokin is a prized art form in Japan, and Chokin objects are highly sought-after by collectors.
