Here you can learn some tips on blade sharpening, saw sharpening and bringing old tools back into a life time of service. On this channel I’m going to show off my Japanese tools and do project videos where I predominantly use Japanese tools to make stuff. I like starting woodworking projects with a log so you will get to see my axes and ripping saws at work before we move on to nomi and ryoba.

“Chestnut_nag” is my handle on Ebay. Every month I bring in several boxes of tools from Japan. Some I add to my tool kit others I sell on Ebay, Facebook or directly to people who have asked me to track down something special.
