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 marking knives are forged with laminated shirogami #2 (white paper steel) cutting edges. Available in a range of sizes, they are hollow ground along the length of their back and feature a traditionally textured forged finish on their front.

Kiridashi are designed to be run along a straight edge, scribing lines precisely and severing surface fibres in preparation for sawing or chiseling. As the flat back has to act as a referencing face, these tools need to be selected according to the hand that they will be used in.

In other uses, Kiridashi are often also utilised by carvers, especially in their smaller sizes. in these applications, the location of the bevel is less important.

For best results, lapping the back of a kiridashi flat will give the woodworker access to it's full potential. Although it arrives relatively sharp, it can be honed to a much keener edge than the manufacturer has given it. Please note that sizing measurements are taken across the width of the tool at the start of the bevel - they are not an indication of bevel length.

Marking knives

Excellent. I needed to mark out dovetails on a box I was creating. Using the left hand and right hand markers made this much easier than in the past. I needed to identify the markers and their scabbards but that was easy.

Great starter/practice knives

I got these because I wanted to try out woodcarving without committing too much in case it wasn't for me. But these knives are great and I'm looking forward to using them more!
