Overall length 220mm (blade 60mm)
These chisels are made from blue steel in the Sanjo region of Japan. They are blacksmith made chisels and come ready sharpened.
The high carbon-steel edge guarantees perfect sharpness and precision and is backed by a body of softer iron - a perfect 'shock absorber'. This backing iron is "folded" and then etched in acid to reveal the distinctive damascas pattern which is particularly attractive in the wider chisels.
Suminagashi series are made in small batches by a small cooperative of blacksmiths from the Niigata area (around Sanjo).
Beautifully balanced with traditional red oak handles.
Single, double or triple hollow ground depending on chisel width.
These chisels are available individually or in a set of 6.
Set of 6 - 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 18mm, 24mm, and 30mm
