    Japanese Blacksmith Tools for Gardening, etc

    Yup those red and whites (okatsune) are great little knockabouts. Old school getting down to the basics right there! ... and stretch those knees :confused:

    Japanese Blacksmith Tools for Gardening, etc

    Gotcha.. sounds like they’d fit right in. Lol.. yes I understand the 'want' factor all too well and sometimes it need to be beat with 'get' factor :D But only of course if the 'used' factor is built in!

    My foray into binchotan

    Also have one from Korin.. love it! Got the next size up, the wide shallow one. You can actually put water in that hotel pan and put the charcoal out in it. Won’t hurt it a bit, it’ll dry out just fine, and you can use the water on your garden.

    Here’s what is inside my tool bag (everything can be holstered)... the pvc holds oil, foil, small oil rag and a wrench to take apart tools. Karikomi shears need their own photo :) then there are the saws and the ladders ;)

    Japanese Blacksmith Tools for Gardening, etc

    Me too! And yes edge retention is impressive.. actually amazing! Don’t know what your going to cut with those shears but being that they are the same length I went the barracudas because they can handle a much tougher branch and still do what the #3's do... more workhorsey. If you get them...

    Exactly! Thanks Dave appreciate that! I think I remember a blip about this when I was doing more woodworking back in the 90's. It really reminds me of the finish of some high end chippendale antiques... beautiful!

    Those will be good Keith, they’re workhorses. The steel is a little soft (dents not chips) so give your edges a check every now and then. I got three pair of them a short w/short blade $25, a short w/long blade $35 and a long w/short blade $49 from a place in Oregon a few years ago...

    Tall petty knives recommendations

    Love my mazaki 180 petty, comes in at 187/37. I don’t have huge hands so I’ve got plenty of knuckle clearance, that and a very nice grind makes for good board work, and for some reason this knife draw cuts really well.
