Made of durable white (high-carbon) steel laminated onto a softer steel back for added strength, these bench chisels sharpen easily and hold an edge longer than Western chisels. Made in the same manner they have been for centuries, Japanese chisels are individually tempered to Rc 62-64 by a master craftsman. Each chisel is sharpened to a razor edge, ready to use and fitted with a hand-forged, hooped Japanese red oak handle. Handle ends are pre-peened over the hoop and ready to use. Chisels measure 9" long with a 2-1/4" blade length.
