Plane and anchor

 Carpenter's tools are the specialities of Hyogo Prefecture Miki City. There is a plane in those tools. Though the part of the edge uses the Yasugi steel of Hitachi Metals, Ltd. for the plane, an old anchor and a chain are used for the part of the base of the plane again. I don't know the reason clearly though a specialist says "A whetstone hit is good." Probably, I think that old iron is said to be wrought iron.
 I interviewed Mr.Sadahide Chiyotsuru who was plane master and lived in Miki City, in February, 1995. The friendly old blacksmith made stand a 4 nail anchor pulled up off the shore of Shimonoseki City on the garden of his house. He told that it was left for the commemoration because it was such a respectable anchor though he was cut off and handled in the tip part of the nail in the material of the plane. If eyes are closed, a heart is light before God. The old blacksmith made this word of Mr.Korehide Chiyotsuru (Tokyo) who was his teacher, a motto.
 His work (the plane of the name of the Evening Calm and the cutter knife of the Black lizard) was being exhibited in the hardware materials palace of Miki City.
