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. 

Description

These beautiful marking knives are hand forged in Sanjo, Niigata prefecture.

Their classic shape and blackened finish make them a simple yet elegant tool to use. We now carry these marking knives in a wide variety in shapes, sizes and materials.

All of our kiridashi have laminated blades. The range we have carried the longest uses SK5 for their cutting edges, and ours quickly became some of the most used tools in our workshops. 

However, for those who are looking for a premium Japanese steel in their knives, we have now added blue paper steel (aogami #2) edges to the range. In day-to-day use, the very tip of the kiridashi can be quite exposed, and we have found the blue paper steel range to have less delicate ends. This is, of course, relative - drive any kiridashi hard enough into your material and you may end up saying good-bye to the last millimetre or two of your cutting edge.

The next decision to be made about a kiridashi concerns it's size, and this is entirely up to personal preference and the uses you will have for a knife. If you are working on small projects and prefer a pen-like feel in the hand, consider a size 15mm and smaller. If you would prefer that your kiridashi feel more like a carving knife, we suggest a size 18mm or larger. All take a magnificent edge, but if you would like your knife to take on extra duties such as carving and tuning the corners of your joints, the larger sizes will prove more useful as they have longer cutting edges.

Finally, consider whether you are right or left handed, and choose the option below accordingly.

Please note that, as with all Japanese chisels and planes, flattening the back of a kiridashi will bring it to a higher level of accuracy and sharpness. 

We now add a very small supplementary bevel right at the tip of our kiridashi. This is a technique we were originally taught by Hiroshi Yamaguchi during one of his classes in our workshop, and it allows a kiridashi to be used almost ambidextrously. Keep an eye out for that video coming soon!

Brilliant gift

This item was bought as a gift for my Son and I’m told is brilliant and will do the job it’s intended for. I live in UK and he lives in Brisbane, Aus … so I’ve not actually seen the item other than via video link! I’m sure I’ll be purchasing more items from the company in future.

Xmas Wishes

We bought this item for Xmas for our son and he absolutely loved the look and feel of the Baishinshi Kiridashi before he even started to use it. Delivery was very reliable and arrived as expected
