Single blade, simple blade.
One piece of wood, one piece of steel.
Yes I think this relates well to my need to have a hobby that
does simple things well with craftsmanship.
I get through nearly everyday with the thought,
'Ahh... 1 hour in the workshop tonight!' - that is what I am looking forward to.
This blog, my making, has that 1 hour to thank for most of what I do.
I think that is what you call a fine mouth?!
As this was made the same length and width as a Japanese Dai I already had...
I thought I wonder how similar they are?
(I am thinking Holm Oak is even denser you see!)
So I have weighed them, bear in mind the Holm Oak
(on the right below and top above)
is actually a few millimetres thinner...
and the Japanese Dai has a steel bar in it while mine does not...
Japanese Oak = 463 grams
British Holm Oak = 461 grams
So Holm Oak is denser from my little experiment...
