Kibori Nomi are similar in size and appearance to the Moku Hanga Nomi, except the shanks are shorter and narrower in the neck, while the handles are longer to facilitate the moves necessary in relief sculpting. These heavy-duty tools may be used with a kizuchi, or wooden mallet. They are about 8 inches long. The blades are made of the highest quality steel, while the handles are lacquered kashi (Japanese oak), the strongest and most durable wood growing in Japan. Metal rings have been added to prevent the handle from splitting when it is tapped with a mallet.
These tools are only available by SPECIAL ORDER. Kibori Nomi will be ordered when we place our next order from our supplier in Japan. Please allow 3 to 6 months for delivery. Prices range from the mid-$70's to over $200. Call for current information on sizes and price. You will be charged for the tool plus shipping from McClain's to you when you place the order. Once the order has been placed with the craftsman in Japan, there are no returns or refunds.
