Item details

This is a traditional woodworking tool of Japan, used by a local woodworker. It is a curved or gouge chisel, of Japanese forged steel and oak handle. It is still possible to sharpen and use this tool. For collectors, it will make a decorative display too. The tool was got from a local, country woodworker now retired - as with some of my other antique tools. These tools are not easy to come by, if you don't have direct acquaintances and specific opportunities to visit stranger's workshops; being a foreigner in Japan, with familiarity and contacts, makes it that much more rare.
I use these kinds of tools in my own furniture making, and am familiar with general qualities and usefulness. I try to gather tools that are usable, or if not then of rare interest. Please contact me with questions or concerns. Russell Jokela
