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

This high-quality kit includes all the basic tools needed to mark, cut and clear the small half-lap joints that are required for the frames of shoji screens and kumiko.

This kit includes; 

  • Our fantastically fine 210mm Nakaya dozuki saw with crosscut tooth profile. Utilising a 0.2mm thick saw plate, this saw leaves kerfs 0.3mm thick and is capable of following scribed knife lines.
  • 2x 150mm hatagane clamps, used to clamp the frame members together for accurate and repeatable marking
  • 2x 180mm hatagane clamps
  • 1x shirogami kiridashi marking 18mm. These high quality knives use premium steel and will take a razor edge. Please specify whether you would like your knife bevelled for left-handed use or right-handed use above. This is used to mark cut lines in the frame that the saw will later follow.
  • 1x 45mm Shinwa try square for transferring dimensions across all members of the frame from the master stick.
  • 1x 3mm Shinogi Nomi , perfect for clearing out your half laps once both sides of the joint have been cut.
  • 1 x Japanese Bronze-Finish Hammer 115g

For those looking to learn more about shoji and kumiko making, Toshio Odate's book on shoji is instructive and inspiring. Similarly, Des King is a master of Kumiko and a prolific Australian maker and teacher of the craft. His books can be bought through his website and are a goldmine of information in the field.
