$289.00
Baishinshi Kiridashi (Handed)

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 120mm hatagane clamps, used to clamp the frame members together for accurate and repeatable marking
  • 2x 240mm Hatagane clamps
  • 1x shirogami kiridashi marking knife 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.
