Tasai family has been making state of art chisels for many decades. The father Akio is such a pleasant person to be with, he is always bursting with big smile as if life is always so sweet for him. The son Michio is another amiable person as much as his father. Very dexterous blacksmith already at age of 38, he has even passed the national test and became a certified sword smith, spending 8 long years of training under the renowned master swordsmith Takano Yukimitsu.Β 

Tasai's production is in it's peak now. Everything that they produce boast high quality and absolute beauty. Tasai uses specially ordered Blue Steel which is between #1 and #2, thus I call it Blue #1.5. They treat the steel with special tempering process, so even though the steel is Blue Steel it is relatively easy to sharpen.
