I am having a serious trouble taking care of orders and inquiries within a reasonable time frame, forgive me that my personal assistance
will be temporaliry unavailable for a while. Might take a month or two to catch up.(as of Apr 8th).
Also, while I am still keeping the shopping page open so that you can make purcahse of items that you do not need my personl assistance,
please be aware that our shipping speed is extremely slow. It is impossible for for us to ship the order
within a few days, we sometimes can, but normally dad needs at least 2 to 3 days to just reach(view) your order, pack carefully and get to the P.O. and send.
Please expect at least 2 to 3 days, up to a week or so to receive the "Shipped" notice.
If you are in a hurry, and if the items you are interested are available thru other shops, I am very sorry for the inconvenience, but to be sure that
you will receive your tools/stones by the time you need them, I would recommend to order them from a larger operation. If the item can only be found
thru me, and if you need to receive it by certain day, please try to place the order as many weeks as possible before your deadline.
Japan Tool has finally managed to prepare some easy to choose items to be available thru the shopping cart system. I had to make so~~~~~~~~~ many people wait (or give up...) for the simplest orders for the past few years, but not anymore!
I limited the listing to selected tools and stones that most likely doesn't require my personal assistance in choosing. All the tools listed here should be quite clear in identifying the suitable usage, so for these items, I believe you will not have to worry whether you are making the right choice.
On the other hand, I will probably not list too many natural stones (at least not the very best ones) here as natural stones require much personal assistance for the right stone to land in the right hand For example, a razor stone landing in the hand of a knife sharpener = disaster. Having said that, I will try to list little by little, explaining the stone's character to the detail as much as possible so that you will be able to judge whether it is suitable for your preference/usage.
It is ideal if I can personally consult with each users, interviewing the needs and preferences to decide what stone to offer, but as this takes so much time, unfortunately I cannot do this for too many people at one time. So despite the lack of my meticulous consultation, I figure that many would still be happy if there are at least a few options available from time to time on the shopping cart page, knowing that they are at least chosen by Japan Tool for the mentioned purposes. I'll try my best to keep at least one option (a few if time permits) listed for each category of tools, i.e. the straight edge razors, wood working tools (or various flat beveled tools) and knives.
For the time being, there will be only one person taking care of the incoming orders, so forgive us if there will be a bit of delay in the shipping. Once I know that there's too much demand for one man to operate, I will try to reorganize so that the shipping speed will be quicker.
Lastly, none of the tools shown here are listed only because they are famous or sell well. They are the tools that I myself use, love and hence recommend! I hope you will enjoy my selected tools.
