Japanese Bench Chisel - Set of 7 incl Canvas Wrap
Manufactured by Kakuri in Sanjo, Niigata prefecture, these chisels are forged with a blue paper steel cutting edge laminated to a soft iron backing. This affords the user a quicker and easier sharpening experience without sacrificing excellent edge retention or the ability to take a very keen edge.
These chisels are an economical option due to a lack of hand-working in the manufacture process, though this introduces no compromise in the end product. These chisels are an excellent introduction to Japanese tools for those who are not yet familiar with them, and a no-risk option for the craftsman looking to expand their toolbox with some quality steel at an affordable price.
This set contains 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, 18mm, 24mm and 36mm sizes.
This chisel comes with a leather sheath to protect the edge. Overall length of each chisel is approximately 215mm, blade length is 60mm, handle length is 90mm.
Buying the set of 7 is a $59 savings than purchasing chisels individually.
