Japanese Yatate with Ruler
This yatate has been sold. See the TOKOHAN catalog for currently available yatate.
Yatate with "extras" (Swiss Army Yatate, as we call them) are some of our favorite finds. This yatate doubles as a ruler with a brass plate engraved with measured tick marks sitting atop the yatate handle.
These "ruler yatate" were often used by carpenters or other craftsmen who required the occasional use of a measuring device in their daily work. This particular yatate is identical in style to one on the front cover of Daruma Magazine #43.
