Copper, Japanese folk tool, Color glass(Yellow)

Feel the craftsman’s attention to detail in the carefully made tool. The woven bamboo pattern seems to have “beauty” as its function. The inscription “February 1965, Izutsu” on the back of the tool is the signature of the maker, or was it written by the user? Either way, it is a sign of respect for the tool. I imagine a day in the life of the person who used the tool and enjoyed the harvest.
