The Bachido Blogcast, Episode 102:

Introducing Brian Chan

It's a special day here at Bachido! We are honored with a delightful visit from CAD extraordinaire Brian Chan, inventor of the Folding Ukulele (, designer of ShamiSpoons ( and much more! In today's interview, Brian tells us how he got started, and shows us a few of his incredible works of art - The Foldable Shamisen and Foldable Er-Hu!

But that's not all! Afterwards, I travel to Brian's kingdom in Boston, where he unveils his new collapsible itomaki, a wood/aluminum shamisen koma, and his full size CNC-cut tsugaru shamisen!

Afterwards, we head into the shop where Brian uses a CNC machine to cut out parts of a full size sao for tsugaru shamisen. Whoa nellie!! All of it was a very eye-opening experience.
