Oi-masame is our recommendation. Please let us know if you would like Masame.

We can accomodate any bedding angle for a "finished dai" or a "finished & ready to use dai". If it's steeper than 42 degrees, an additional charge $10.00 or up will be charged.

If you would like to have a "finished & ready to use dai" made for your own plane blade, sending the blade to the dai maker is required. A shipping cost in this case is on you.

    I ordered some Inomoto kanna dai for hira-ganna from Suzuki-ya. The Japanese white oak from Inomoto was flawless. Very tight,dense and straight grained, it was very precisely milled and as dry as can be. Incredibly stable material. I can't imagine finding better kanna dai material anywhere. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to make their own kanna.
