Description

st0050-chisel-japanese

Japanese Post & Beam Chisels have a heavy construction, with an extra long shank and slightly curved profile to facilitate chiseling mortises up to 11″ deep.

Each blade is:

  • Hand forged from Yasuki white steel and wrought iron.
  • Overall length is 16-1/2″
  • Blade length is 4-3/4″

These Japanese chisels are made by Mr. Teiichiro Ohkubo whose grandfather started the forge and established the brand name Daitei Nomi 100 years ago. Mr. Ohkubo’s grandfather won many prizes including a Gold medal in 1925 and a presidential prize in 1942.

The current Ohkubo began training at age 14 and now has 40 years of chisel making experience. He has been recognized as a Koshiki Tanren, which means he has been trained in the traditional manner. He is one of only a handful of makers that can make chisels in the traditional manner, i.e. no use of any power assisted equipment.

Please Note:

These chisels are with Japanese ‘White’ Steel, prepared in a way to allow for an edge that’s as good as it gets. They’re not the chisel for inexperienced ‘pounders’ as the steel can be brittle. They’re more of a shaving/smoothing/cleaning up. Often considered the ‘Maestro’s’ chisel…for a person who knows when to use a chisel of a different steel for certain jobs.

If you’re just starting out, or a competent journeyman, you might consider the excellent Barr Chisels
