Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy.

Great starter kit

Kit was exactly what I was looking for as a starter set and alongside the videos provided on the site I managed to make two very functional teaspoons and have now moved on to bigger projects using the provided tools.

Lovely set

I bought the Simple Teaspoon Carving Kit for my wife for Mother’s Day. She was thrilled with it as was I. It is beautifully presented, in a wooden box. Unfortunately as yet she has not had a chance to use it, but I have no doubts that it will perform as well as it looks

Get some zen.

A fantastic little set to learn on. I've used it heaps and moved on to other spoons and other timber. I loved that the slower you worked and less you took gave better results!

A great little kit’

This a great little kit to have a go! I love the 9mm gouge and have used it for my last few projects. As always the opening of a package from JTA is always a pleasure!
