A handmade chisel is more than a woodworking tool. It imbues the spirit of that Master Blacksmith and his heritage. It represents hours of the maker’s focused energy and the work of his hands. It carries on the Japanese toolmaking tradition. Those things cannot be sought through a mass-produced instrument. The discriminating craftsman should own at least one handmade Japanese chisel (or a set!) in his or her lifetime. Learn more about the makers and their chisels in this Woodworking Adventures blog.
A new Bevel Edge Socket Chisel series is now part of the WoodRiver line of hand tools from Woodcraft.
