Description

Known as umeki-nomi, these versatile traditional tools are favored for their ability to work into sharp corners.

Though they excel at removing the waste from between dovetails, they are suitable for a variety of tasks because their triangular sections and narrow edges allow them to work adjacent to any inclined surface. Their red oak handles have pre-seated hand-forged hoops and are slightly canted to provide clearance for flush-trimming projections and paring recessed joints.

Hand forged and finely finished by master blacksmith Hiroshi Koyama (Koymaichi), the laminated blades combine a hard high-carbon Hitachi white steel face with a shock-absorbing softer steel back.

Hardened to Rc65-66. Available individually or as a set of all six sizes in a canvas tool roll. (Since these are hand made, they may vary in size by ±1mm.)
