Hb13 “Oshikiri” (cutter)


The City of Hiroshima

This was modeled on a Japanese farming tool by using a cane knife.
Crop or grass was cut by placing it between the blade and base and pressing down on the handle (Since the tip of the blade is attached to the base, it was possible to cut the items firmly by raising in lowering the blade.).
Farmers in Japan often cut hay for cattle or horse feed.
