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

At JTA we have been lucky enough to come into possession of offcuts of Huon Pine. Those familiar with this precious golden timber will know that it is amongst the most slow-growing species in Australia and is now logged in a very limited and highly regulated way, including decades-old timber that is salvaged from Tasmania's dams.

These offcuts that are not large enough to use in furniture, box making or veneering, but are the perfect size to be made into carving blanks. We have designed simple spoon blanks and rough-cut them to shape, ready for you to reveal the beautiful spoons within. This is a great opportunity for carvers of all levels to experiment with this relatively rare and beautiful timber, and eliminates the hard slog that can be roughing in a spoon shape into dried timber if preparatory tools are not close at hand.

Please note that, although Huon Pine is generally a very nice timber to carve, it's grain can be highly irregular in both direction and density. This means that some skill or practice may be required to read and work the grain correctly. While we try to cut these blanks following straight, tight grain, the nature of the timber means that to exclude pieces with grain changes would mean not utilising significant parts of this resource. We cut all blanks from the same templates, but small variations can be expected. 

Length: 160mm
Width: 35mm
Thickness: 12mm (approx.)

Lovely to carve

I have always thought that a hammer was just a hammer. I got the 225g and it has changed my mind, the balance and feel in hand it has is amazing. The neck of the hammer is thin, thus enables me to sight past it to where i am striking and allows me to choke up on the hammer for finer work. Quite a long handle that allows more moment when striking. My fingers on the recieving end thank me everytime i use this hammer.
