Hi all,

I'm Martin, a Yank expat in Japan. Just discovered antler carving recently and would like to attempt some simple " Manju " netsuke from some antlers I've collected hiking in my area.  Will be asking about dremels and the like and simple chisels and hand tools.  If there's anybody else in Japan or in the Kansai area would like to hear from you.  I've been doing simple silver castings for just over a year and would also like to perhaps incorporate the two eventually. 

Nice to meet you

Welcome to you, Martin!

What inspired you to learn to carve manju netsuke?

Thanks for the welcome!

Honestly I stumbled across some images of very simple Manju netsuke, just discs or ovals really,  and I said " hey I can do that!" :D

thats about all i can probabaly do too, also a simple shape might be easy to accept my silverwork

G`day mate.

I am also in Japan, New at this as well. I live in Tottori City a few hours drive from Osaka.

I am not into netsuke as such, but have kind of become interested in it.

My main interest ATM is bone carving pendants.
