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. Hollow on the back of the blade is single. Mortise chisels are designed specifically for deep mortise work in carpentry and heavy cabinet work. It is made with a square section and a thick, robust blade to be able to cut out mortises and joints in joinery work. These white steel blades are laminated to wrought iron, and heat tempered to Rockwell c64-65 to ensure a tough and lasting edge. Finally, the handles are individually turned from Japanese Red oak and fitted with hand hammered hoops. This set includes 3 most basic size often used in the shop, a 6mm, 12mm and 18mm ( Photo shows a 4th chisel – 1/4″ bench chisel which is not included in the offer, my apologies) But the chisel holder is Free and comes with the set.
Maintaining the chisels is a must. I recommend applying Camellia oil prior to storing in the canvas or leather chisel holder which are available for purchase separately.
