These forged, laminated Japanese chisels have longer than usual handles made of tough white oak. This gives them a far more comfortable feel in the hands of a western woodworker. The blades are approximately 62mm (2.1/2") long, both tanged and socketed into the handle. Their hollow backs make sharpening easier and reduce friction when paring. A steel ring on the top of the chisel protects the handle from mallet or hammer blows. The overall length is approximately 250mm (10"). This set, complete in a stylish wooden box, comprises the six most popular sizes: 6mm, 8mm, 12mm, 18mm, 24mm and 30mm.
