The same care and attention that goes into their traditional tools goes into the production of these Japanese made chisels. The difference being, these are in the western style with a blade length of approximately 100mm(4"). A broad bolster and tough polypropylene handle complete the tool. The overall length is approximately 255mm(10"). The blades of these professional grade chisels are made of high grade steel alloyed with chrome and vanadium. Carefully hardened and tempered, they hold a razor edge for far longer than an equivalent western chisel. They have good balance in the hand and are suitable for both site and finer bench work.
