- Small slant-point graver-type knife set in black wooden handle used in Japanese woodblock cutting. Embosssed with maker's chop. See illustrations GA*03209.03-.04. See Item No. 3 in watercolor showing the woodblock cutter's tools which is represented by GA.03210.03, the handle only. As of 2017, we believe that GA.03211.12 is a replacement knife acquired for exhibition purposes when the original knife lost its blade.
