Square (Sashigane) $44

The notoriously difficult to photograph Japanese square is another important element to traditional woodworking. It’s thin flexible blade is the perfect compliment to the sumitsubo and sumisashi. Since they come in inch, millimeter and shaku (traditional Japanese measurement system) be sure to select the one right for you.
