Master Blacksmith Yoshio Usui from Yoita, Japan, crafted these high-speed steel (HSS) bench chisels. A fourth-generation chisel maker, he started his apprenticeship with his father at 15. He has been making chisels one at a time since 1962 and continues to work alone, even to this day. Mr. Usui has developed a shrewd insight into chisel making, using a mixture of handwork and machines. His preference for HSS provides a more consistent chisel that sharpens easily and stays sharp a long time.

Our 10-piece Sukemaru HSS Bench Chisel Set includes 3mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, 18mm, 24mm, 30mm, 36mm, and 42mm chisels, each fitted with an ebony handle. Overall length 8 5/8" Blade length 2 3/8" (OL.217mm; BL.060452mm)

Features:

• 10 piece set

• Handcrafted in Japan by Master Blacksmith Yoshio Usui

• Made with an ebony handle

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.
