  • The Shiragaki knife is a special Japanese laminated marking knife used for trimming & shaping, but it is especially good for light trimming as in use as a chisel. The top of the blade has a right hand bevel edge with the back side flat & hollow ground for easy re-sharpening.

       Mr. Ikeuchi master blacksmith along with his fellow blacksmiths hand forge, grind, & sharpen these knives. White high carbon steel laminated on top with a softer layer of steel allowing the blade to be hardened to Rockwell 64. With all steel as it becomes harder & tougher, it will be more brittle & can snap in half, the soft steel lamination arrests this possibility. These knives we carry from Mr. Ikeuchi are beveled ground on one side only & flat to edge on the underside yet hollow ground as a common practice to facilitate less time in re-honing to a sharp edge.

       Hardwick & Sons is pleased to offer quality tools from Japan for the many people who desire special & well-crafted tools. The wide variety of Japanese products that we offer come from the many craftsmen & toolmakers in Japan who have a special dedication to their skillful craft & art of toolmaking.

My favorite marking knife

This knife is easy to sharpen, and easier to use. I haven't lost any finger tips to the low chisel-like blade angle... unlike some more pointed knife designs (operator error, I know.) The flat blade/handle let's me work closely to a large surface with ease. I don't need to use a small plane iron when I can just grab this tool. I suppose the more pointed style knives follow a small curve more easily, but for everything else I prefer this tool.
