The Plane HEIJI
We use the pine charcoal for the production process.
We make this plane with special swedish steel and very old iron.
Many dai (part of wood) is useally made with machine.handmade.
But this special dai is handmade for ideal shape.
The machine can not make this shape.

We can make plane with single blade or double blades.

The report of KEZUROIU-KAI carried this plane.

Rentetu and Watetsu
We introduce the Rentetsu amd watetsu which are used as material Jigene.


Rentetsu was made in U.K or Sweden 100 to 120 years ago. Rentetsu is softer than modern iron. When you sharpen blade,rentetsu is very easy to sharpen.Rentetsu became an abradant. It will abrede the edge of blade.
But, Rentetsu can not be produced now. The quantity of Rentetsu is now declining.
So Rentetsu is very rear iron and good iron for blades.

Watetsu was produced in old days in Japan more than 140 years. Watetsu was produced by the Japanese original manufacturing method which is called "Tatara".
Tatara makes very high quality steel and iron, but it is very high cost of production.
The business of Tatara came to end in 1912. Now Watetsu is more softer than rentetsu. It is the best for sharpening blades. The high quarity Watetsu is very very valuable.
