Very Good Info on Japanese Tools June 6 2009
By Ronin - Published on Amazon.com

In many ways this book feels dated, but it could just be the old photos and the hair style. In all fairness, if you have an interest in these special tools and their use and care, this is an excellent source along with Toshio Odate's "Japanese Woodworking Tools". Lots of good b/w pictures showing the tools in action. Chapters include:

1) Intro
2) Saws
3) Sharpening Stones
4) Planes
5) Chisels
6) Measuring and Marking Tools
7) Miscellaneous Tools
8) Unusual Japanese Tools

Good stuff.

A good book if you are a novice. For me I am a journeyman and was not that illuminating. Still a good book to reference and for the beginner.
