Ink Line Marker Sumitsubo:

In the world of Japanese carpentry, the Sumitsubo is a highly valued tool. Much like the Western chalk line, it’s essential for drawing exact, thin lines on wooden logs and beams. It’s core lies in a delicate thread, carefully pulled through an ink-soaked pad. Stretched and snapped sharply onto a surface, it leaves a precise and fine line.
