The Mini Ebony Planes are designed in Japan and was originally also produced there, but due to the makers finding it difficult to source the ebony timber in Japan, production was moved to a company in Hong Kong which have been making traditional Chinese tools for over 35 years. Once manufactured, the planes return to Japan for quality control testing and packaging.
This is one of the only products JTA sell that is not made in Japan. But we are confident that these mini planes are of premium quality.
