Konobu 42mm Assab K120 Kanna Blade


WOW WOW WOW, what a beauty..., I was very surprised to see the photos of these blades, didn't expect them to be finished so darn finely, they are looking pretty much like the works of the late Ichihiro....

I mean..., look at the Kuro-kawa (oxide film), so~~~~~~~~~~~~~ fine, so~~~~~~~~ elegant, so stylized (can you see the mannerism?)..., the Kuro-ura (back hollow with the oxide film in tact), nothing can be bettered from here....

I am very happy that I can supply such special items, share the joy with the users, because often, such special items are only made in tiny quantity, they get stuck with me, hahaha.

I've been slightly jaded (spoiled) looking at all the gorgeous tools all the time, it's been a while since I've felt this way about tools, this sort of excitement, the joy of sharing such items with the users.

Saitou-san does such a fine job..., I feel lucky that I am a woodworker (as well as a tool shop masta) while Saitou-san is still in action....


I ordered these to be fitted to Dai-naoshi-ganna dai (scraper plane for kanna dai sole adjusting), but they can totally be used as Ko-gannas (small plane, single or double blade) too.

If you can make your own dai, that's great. If you need good dai material, I can supply, but you can use basically any hardwood, so I might recommend enjoy making with something lying around in your workshop!

If you wish to have the dai fitted, please mention upon checking out. My suggestion would be to have two dais made, one for Dai-naoshi, and another for single blade Ko-ganna. (Checking the prices now, will list soon.)
