Process: Tsukimi Tanto (autumn moon watching)


Recommended Posts

Koshirae Bukuro

 

One more...late night, hand stitching an antique silk obi sash (from an outdoor temple market in Kyoto) into a koshirae bukuro storage bag...leather thimble borrowed from my lovely wife. Hand laminated steel bladed shears by Shozaburo~san of Tokyo, I inherited them from a friend I was helping clean out some of her parents' storage. On the left is my version of a simple pocket-carry mekugi-nuki-tool, forged from scraps of my old charcoal kiln.

...will replace this with a longer cord so i can tie the proper knot, but this image reminds me of an old hand-coloured photograph...
