Tsunesaburo Miniature (Mame) 9mm Red Oak Compass Plane with Cell Phone/Key Chain Strap - Akio Uozum

Item #159699


Product Information:

During a recent trip to Japan we visited with Akio Uozumi, a third-generation plane blade maker in the Tsunesaburo family of blacksmiths – the best known and most respected plane makers in Japan. The family built a reputation on providing what customers want and need versus following the traditional course. This dedication to the customer has resulted in their planes being embraced by a new generation of woodworkers in both Japan and the United States.

The family name is a combination of the word Tsune, meaning “always”, and Saburo, the name of the original maker, Akio’s grandfather, Mr. Saburo Uozumi.

During our visit, Mr. Akio Uozumi showed us miniature planes that he makes for gifts and as mementoes. If owning Tsunesaburo working planes is your passion, then you won’t be able to do without these miniatures. Only 2" long, this red oak Compass Plane can be carried around utilizing the key chain/cell phone strap.
