  1. If you use water stones, this is the way to go. If you're gonna do it, do it with style!
  2. Folks, I would like to know what these knives primary purpose is. I received them from the estate of a woodcarver, among many other talents he had. They look a tad rusty at the knife portion but man the cutting edge is surgical sharp! They are about 6" long and range from 1/2" to 1" wide, and about 1/8" thick. They all have makers marks or as I have learned with Japanese tools, the stamps could be philosophical musings. Any help identifying the actual use appreciated.
  3. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    a set of Japanese marking knives, I'd like to thank Keith Mealy for helping me identify what these knives are used for, marking. Used for scribing fine lines on wood, they are very sharp.
  4. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    A different set of markings compared to the other knives. I want to research some more on these to find out what these markings mean, we have a friend from Japan who I am sure will be able to translate these marks.
  5. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    An unknown makers mark on the back on these knives, all the marks appear to be different, but the knives seem to be made from the same maker.
  6. As I search through my last tool haul, I am finally getting to bottom of some boxes, and I found this gem. It's a Japanese hatchet, or machete, made by "Nata". The stamping on it translated is "Nata Single Edge". I love this tool, it's heavy, strong, and I could easily see walking through the forest and coming up on some small branches and logs, and splitting them with a maul, and this tool, green chair making? It could be in my future. Here is the Nata, the sheath is actually made of wood, covered in swede. My new found friend Ikeda Tomoko helped me ID this tool, she is a woodworker in Japan, and we corresponded through Facebook on this. She also judges woodworking shows in her home country, as seen in this image below, she is holding the shave from dropping.
  7. $18,000 or best offer, it's yours. Personally if I had 15 to 18 grand of disposable income, I'd pick it up in a heartbeat. I love Nakashima designs and the history that surrounds the name. These don't come around too often. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Early-Free-Edge-Walnut-Bench-by-American-Woodworker-George-Nakashima/172438177859?hash=item28261dc843:g:9OsAAOSwEzxYSdXK
  8. Didn't want to wait until Wednesday to share this. I spent a little time in Japan but only remember 2 words of the language.
  9. This chisel. Came all the way from Okinawa, Japan. Cost me $11.50......so I need to know more about this style of chisels Quite a change from my Butcher mortise chisels. This one is 12mm wide. Seems to be a made in Japan mortise chisel....handle is solid, no cracks.. That be an iron hoop. Twas a bit rust when it came in the mail.. Heavy duty? No nonsense blade. Back has a hollow.. By design? haven't found any maker's marks.....Has a single bevel.. May need to work on it, sometime. Need to find out just what to maintain one of these with. I do not have any water stones in the shop, just oil ones. Also will need a project that calls for 1/2" wide mortises, so I can give this thing a tryout. BTW, it makes my other mortise chisels look puny....
  10. Today while I was in Walmart, I met and talked to a WWII vet in a wheel chair. I always shake their hands and thank them. This guy was on a mountain the Pacific islands spotting Jap ships and subs. He detailed what his job was and the dangers involve. How ironic. I saw a History channel special about his job and how it change the course of the war. The Japs couldn't operate safely there to reload/recharge. He is a true war hero. By the way, he was waiting on his wife of nearly 65 years. IF YOU SEE A WWII VET THANK HIM. THERE ARE SO FEW LEFT YOU MAY NOT TO GET THE CHANCE AGAIN!
