Woodblock Tools
Josei Sho To

Josei Sho To
right handed knife shown.

For more about blade angles and which one is right for you, go to The Traditional Way to Hold the Knife (.pdf).

Please note that 1.5mm and 2.0mm blades are very thin and they break easily if used with too much force. The metal is strong, but there is not very much of it in these small blades. Recommended for experienced carvers only.

Special Order
Sho To larger than 15.0mm are available by special order only. If you order one of these large sizes, it will be ordered when we place our next tool order with our supplier in Japan. Please allow three to six months for delivery. You will be charged for the tool when you place the order, and for shipping when we mail the tool to you. Once the order has been placed with the craftsman in Japan, there are no returns or refunds.
