Tekkou (手甲) – wrist guard, also helps not to get your shirt’s cuffs torn or grimy

Jigote (じごて)

Nokogiri (or lovingly Noko) ノコギリ) – pruning saw

Take-wari (竹割) – Bamboo splitter

Kaki-ita (かき板) – mmh… basically a humble trapezoid piece of wood used to move dirt, level surfaces. If you’ve ever used one, you won’t go back.
