Umeki White Steel Japanese Dovetail Chisels. The smith’s family have specialised in making chisels since 1930. These are professional quality chisels with a super hard edge for the cleanest of clean cuts made from White Steel, the same steel used to make Katana. The extra hardened laminated steel holds an excellent edge but needs to be used by an experienced woodworking. The reason being the super hard steel makes for very clean cuts, edge durability but can be prone to chipping in the hands of an inexperienced user. Woodworkers without sufficient experience should consider the softer more forgiving steel of the Maruya chisels. If someone is interested I can get sets of ten Umeki chisels. 9, 15, 25, 30 and 36. Blade: White Steel no. 1 Handle: Japanese Red Oak. These chisels are brand new and straight off the boat. As always the photos are the ultimate and final description. So please examine the photos carefully to avoid disappointment. Unfortunately there isn’t much (any) room to move on price. I’m bringing these in from Japan but they haven’t arrived yet. Please be aware of this when ordering. BUT you must request an invoice before paying. So in future I will only be posting items with tracking. What I’m doing… Check out my latest stuff on You Tube just search for “Chestnut_nag’s Tools From Japan” or “Mad Scientist Prospecting”. I get a box or two a month of tools from Japan or Europe (mostly Japan at the moment). I’m doing this mostly as something to keep myself busy and to fund my hobby/addiction (tools). That means that sometimes I won’t be able to answer your questions as quickly as you or I would like. It may also mean that I might take a little longer to post your items. When life is crazy and “interesting” I can’t answer questions and I can’t get to the post office. I also can’t let you know because when things are bad I’m too busy dealing with Doctors and stuff. So if it takes a while for your item to be posted please understand its because things are not going well and I’m busy looking after my son and myself.
