One of our favourite Japanese hand tools, the one we use every single day in our woodworking workshop... the humble Shirabiki.
The Shirabiki is a Japanese Scoring or Marking Knife used for accurate marking on timber and other materials. You'll never use a pencil again after using one of these great little tools.
With a flat edge that makes it easier to maintain level lines, and a thin profile which marks right next to your square or straight edge, we get great results using this marking knife alongside our hand saws and chisels. A very cool little addition to your workshop.
