*News for September 2014*

During the month of September, there will be price increases on many items in this store. Normally we try very hard to keep any price changes to a minimum, and as small as possible.


We have recently been given the details of the Miki area toolmakers organisation price increase.

We will be maintaining our current pricing until September 16 to allow us to 'beat the clock'. Our price increase will typically be 10-20%. The range is due to our absorbing incremental changes as they have occurred.

Our suppliers have relayed to us that they will not be implementing increases until after this date, and fortunately in a staggered format. This allows us to extend the time before the price increase until late September/early October, and to ensure that nobody misses out, the new date will be Friday, September 26. Not all prices will be increased from this date due to the staggering, but we will maintain the current pricing until this date.

This will affect all of our tools sourced from the Miki area, specifically Koyamaichi, Fujikawa and Ouchi chisels, Tsunesaburo and Koyama planes and Mitsukawa saws.

Many other items will also increase by 10-20%. Until now, we have simply absorbed the incremental price increases, only passing them on when the existing price of an item was simply unsustainable.

Any orders placed during the current pricing schedule will be locked at that price, but after the date the new pricing will be in effect without exceptions.

*Please note that due to unprecedented demand, we are struggling to adequately keep up. Most orders that do not include special order items are shipping according to our usual 2 week processing. Items that need to be specially ordered in, including but not limited to Ouchi, Koyamaichi, Fujikawa chisels, Tsunesaburo and Koyama planes and Mitsukawa saws may take longer to be processed. We cannot offer day by day updates, but will give a time frame if requested.

Our apologies for any distress or inconvenience caused.
