Up for grabs is a premium, professional quality chisel that was favourite of many and adored by professional craftsmen in the tokyo area. It’s a full hardness chisel (unlike lets say many modern smiths) that was forged in the traditional manner of charcoal & water, and received yaki-ire (clay differential tempering). All of which is too expensive and demanding in skill to pull off correctly these days. Many smiths now opt for modern, patent applied for production methods, leading to tools devoid of soul and hardness needed/demanded by the actual old school guys. Unlike what is marketed here. The chisel was made over 50 years. It features a lovely older red oak handle, unlike the modern spongey variety. This will hold up to real work and absorb shock well. In addition to being handsome. What’s special about tokyo tools are that they are slightly smaller and harder than tools from other regions. For the most demanding craftsmen and collector-enthuisast. Try it out if you wish to try out a moder traditional, more handprocessed tool that performs very well and differently than the common garden variety found today.
