Kanna Blade specially made by Mr. Imai, a blacksmith in Kyoto
Its name is “紫明”(Shimei)
In Japan, “the natural scenery is clean and beautiful” is called “山紫水明”(Sanshi Suimei).
I named this Kanna using the words “紫” and “明”.
The beauty of woodworking is that the material is used as it is and its natural state is also beautiful.
It would be nice if Kanna could be used to further express its beauty.
Let’s enjoy woodworking together!
