Japanese Slick

  • Sale
  • Regular price $245.00
Shipping calculated at checkout.


We import this slick directly from Japan. In the spirit of a Samurai sword, this slick has a laminated steel blade. Extremely hard steel on the back of the blade ensures a sharp, durable edge. Softer steel in the blade's belly lends heft and temper to the blade. This tool is not too heavy, but glides precisely across the burliest tenon on its hollow ground back. The 1-7/8-in version is recommended in our one-week timber framing class; it is the ideal width for cleaning out mortices.

You may want to consider the beautiful slicks from Barr. They make a 28"version and a 30"version

Overall length: 22-1/2-24-inches
Blade Length: 4-1/2--5-inches
