Close to the traditional market you can find a very interesting steel factory. This steel factory is one of the places that can show you a traditional way of working.
The way they make their products (which are mostly equipments) has been developed and adjusted from generation on generation.
The owner knows exactly how he has to fabricate the steel, without the need of certain equipment such as a thermometer. He does everything by heart. How hard and strong an steel product will become depends of the fact how often he will hit the steel with his hammer, and how fast he will let the steel cool down with water. There are only few people left on Taiwan who have the knowledge of this technique.
