Product Details

The Hirato profile is very similar to that of a bevel edge carpentry chisel. This profile is most commonly used for smoothing and flattening rough surfaces. 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.
