Tako Kana are used for "tapping-out" the Jigane (soft steel) of the plane iron when the Ura (the area behind the cutting edge) becomes too narrow. For this purpose, one edge has been ground to a radius. This tool is also excellent for general purpose use as an anvil. It is made from special steel, carefully tempered, so as not to damage the plane iron. Length: 4¼". Body width: 2-3/8".
