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.

A nice setI bought mine in December 2017 and have not experienced any of the issues detailed in a previous review. I have used these chisels on a large amount of white oak and they hold their edge very well.

Useless though good lookingThese Japaneese chisels is totally useless. Have used the two small ones twice on some birch stock. Both cracked in the tip like glass,ch ipping in the edge. This was not after hard use just lighter jobs , like trimming some dowtailes. Obviosly the forge procedure went totally wrong for these chisels. Avoid these chisels, they are worthless
