Reprinting the shape of a paper knife

The paper knife (called Shito), which has been attached to the inkstone box since ancient times for separating the scrolls after writing on them, has been reprinted in the modern age.

The shimmering mother-of-pearl

The arrow feathers of the "Hama-ya" (arrow to destroy evil spirits) are decorated with beautifully sparkling mother-of-pearl.
The feathers of eagles, hawks, and steeples are attached to the top of the arrow.
They were designed for their interesting shapes and mottled patterns of feathers, and Momoyama-period bodhgowns are decorated with beautiful designs of arrow feathers in parallel.

Comes in a special wooden box

The paper knife will be delivered in a wooden box with a special velvet cushion.
