Up for grabs is a (6mm) japanese bench chisel from famous/legendary tokyo smith Hiromasa who was a well regarded smith and popular/much loved by carpenters and sashimono alike in the tokyo, kanto area. Made with WS1 40+ years ago & features old quality red oak. Traditional charcoal forged and water quench. This traditional method yet often not practiced anymore retains a higher carbon content (sharper, longer lasting edge). It is both expensive and requires a lot of skill to produce a quality tool using this method. Thank you for looking at this beautiful full hardness and SHARP tool.
