This book was written by a man who was raised to be a traditional Japanese carpenter. The title of the book is not hyperbole. It really does go over the Tradition, Spirit and Use of the different tools used in the traditional carpenters trade.

I found the book to be very well written and the author a well spring of knowledge, most of which never made it into the book. I learned quite a bit about care and maintenance of my own hand tools and I have a better appreciation of them.

This book is mostly written for those either interested in Japanese culture and how carpenters fit in and people who really care about woodworking as a craft. ( )
