Fujihiro brand chisels are hand forged by Chutaro Imai, a blacksmith who has been making chisels almost 50 years and is located in Sanjo City, Niigata prefecture. Best quality “white steel” is forge welded to wrought malleable iron, it is then tempered to Rockwell hardness c65 to create a durable cutting edge and hard core. The hoops are hand hammered and fitted to each handle. The handles are made from Japanese Red Oak. Hollow on the back of the blade is single. Offer is for 4 made up of the four basic sizes often used in the shop 1/4″, 1/2″ 3/4″ and 1″ plus a FREE Chisel holder.
Maintaining the chisels is a must for long lasting use. I recommend using Camellia oil prior to storing the chisels in a canvas chisel holder. Oil sold separately.
