Yes it might seem I gone mad… Japanese French…
But the truth is I had been looking for a Japanese Kozuchi hammer for a while after seeing them used for setting Japanese kanna (hand plane) irons, when one day on E-bay France this hammer head showed up. Don’t know the French name, but it has moved in with my Japanese tools after getting a restore and a handle.
Here you can see it in use: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/40427
1. Kozuchi hammer MaFe style.
2. A piece of wood left it outside for a season or two.
3. After a little turning you can see the rot creates fine patterns.
4. Wedge are shaped.
5. Glue and hammer.
6. Flush cut.
The head as it looked when it arrived.
