Detailed information

Product detailed description

senkichi_logo_regalsTraditional Japanese chalk line Sumitsubo 墨壺 by SENKICHI – a faithful copy made according to an ancient snap-line. The relief of the turtle and the Japanese crane, a water bird that symbolizes prosperity and happiness. Traditional Japanese craftsmanship is deeply connected with mythological scenes. Either way, with this tool, Japanese carpenters and joiners once marked beams, battens, and planks for precise cutting and also laid out the floor plans of wooden homes and monasteries. Inside the container is a bundle of cotton wool, into which you pour colored ink and you're ready to work. The yellow nylon cord is strong and withstands countless snaps.
