Basic tools are neatly arranged in this wooden box that has been used by carpenters since long ago. The refined appearance speaks of the dignity of craftsmen. “Reliable tools are the cornerstone of manufacturing in Japan. Manufacturing begins with tools.” The expert user who makes no compromise in the selection of tools understands their true value and sympathizes with the spirit of the craftsman.
Expert’s comment: I love DIY and am always impressed by the excellence of Japanese implements, such as cutting tools. This set is so beautiful that it enthralls and is extremely satisfying to use. If it were a car, it would be the world’s finest Ferrari. It is the ultimate gift for a woodworking enthusiast. (Jens H. Jensen, Japan Editor of Wallpaper* )
