  • Detailed information about this item

    Master Blacksmith Oka San very kindly allowed us to bring to you a few fine examples of his Craftsmanship.

    An "Ukeki" is shallow triangular profile body enabling ease of dovetail joint cutting. Nomi simply means Chisel

    Umeki Nomi = Dovetail Chisel

    Kamaji Iron is wrought iron which has been hand profiled to form an elegant tree bark design. This Kamaji iron is formed with a very hard white paper steel cutting edge.

    Dependent of the nomi width there may be single hollow ground backs or San Mai (multi hollow).

    Part of history!

    Never forget, the steel ring will need to be fitted to your requirements and although sharp, they are un-sharpened.

    3mm, 6mm & 9mm feature single hollow ground backs

    12mm, 15mm & 18mm feature twin hollow ground backs
