Mekuginuki - Mekugi removal tool
Made in Japan
Dimensions: about 13 cm long
The Mekuginuki is a tool used to take off the menuki from a Iaito / Shinken tsuka.
Made of brass, a ductile material, it will show some traces of use when shocked with a harder material.
How to use: Unscrew the short pin on top of the Mekuginuki, then place the bigger end of the pin on top of the Mekugi and hammer gently. When the Menuki is partially removed, turn the pin and finish the job.
Please make sure you have some spare mekugi before using, as you must not reuse a damaged mekugi, even on a Iaito.
