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.
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 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.
*Currently out of stock. More should arrive in February/March, 2023, except the left-handed tools which should arrive in April/May, 2023. If you order one of these tools, it will be placed on backorder and shipped as soon as possible. You will not be charged until we ship it and there is no additional shipping charged on backorders shipped within the U.S. Thank you for your patience.
