Product Details

This set of five carving tools offers the ideal introduction to Japanese carving tools and is suitable for use by carvers of all abilities. Very different in form to the familiar Western style carving tools, these tools are hand rather than mallet driven. The short blades are made from laminated steel. The back and cutting edge is blue paper steel, a durable high carbon steel alloy which is both hard and capable of taking a razor like edge. The top of the blade is formed using a softer, tougher steel that protects the blue steel layer. Each blade is mounted on a long, magnolia wood handle which is soft in the hand and very comfortable to hold. Comprising Hirato, Into, Maruto, Asamaru and Sankaku profiles, this set is presented in a kiriwood case.

Very different in form to Western carving chisels, Japanese carving tools feature much shorter blades in relation to their handles. These chisels Have laminated steel blades and are made from a base layer of hardened blue paper steel which forms the cutting edge with a softer steel forged over the top. This means the blue paper steel can be much harder allowing it to take an exceptionally fine edge. These carving tools feature magnolia wood handles that feel soft and are comfortable to hold. Chisels measure 205mm in overall length with 26mm long blades.
