Let customers speak for us
Owning a hand-forged Seikichi Sekikawa tool gives you a taste of what happens when craftsmanship gets so involved in its craft that it naturally blurs the lines between function and artistry. Don't be fooled by the apparent simplicity of this rabbet plane; behind its minimal appearance hides incredible precision and sharpness!
Big thanks to the KurashigeTools shop for making it available worldwide <3
The carving detail on this tatakinomi is wonderful and the tool arrived in excellent condition
Well made, easy to use, very good knife which is easy to sharpen - better than most western style gauges
Very pleased with this mentori kanna.
I received the plane very quickly, it was packaged well and I’m very happy to use this in my work. Thankyou!
With a level of craftsmanship that gives a physical object spiritual presence, this elegant tool does not disappoint. Arrived fully set up, with sumisashi (bamboo pen); truly a "just add ink" experience.
Always great service from Kurashige.

The pieces were securely packaged so no damage in shipping. Shipping was quick too. Pieces were just as viewed on the site and very happy. New happy customer that will be looking for more in the future. Thank you!!
Very nice and pretty sharp knife.
It is well made, first sharpening at the Shapton stones was easy and it cuts very smooth. Even for a monosteel a very sharp knife.
Everything I ordered was great quality and packaged very carefully. I will shop here again.
Very good for flattening whetstones.
Beautiful genno and very fast shipping to USA. Feels great in the hand while using nomi. I will be buying more from this store in the future.
