Detailed Description

Aburatsubo Tool Oiler

Japanese craftsmen traditionally kept a small bamboo pot stuffed with cotton wadding within easy reach on their tatami mat work surface. Liberally laced with camellia oil, the wadding served as an automatic oiler for chisels plunged into the pot; a small bit of wadding seized between the fingers sufficed for a quick lubricating wipe on saw blades. This modern version of the aburatsubo carries out exactly the same function, with the added convenience of a cap with a built-in felt wick for wiping tools without oiling your fingers at the same time. Unscrew the cap and plunge your chisels into the wadding within just as a tategushi would have done hundreds of years ago while mortising or paring joints. A very handy addition to the contemporary Western shop.
