Fine, focused and with a wicked edge, the Stiletto chisel by Kamiwaza is a single steel tool, hand forged forged entirely from High Speed Steel (HSS).

They are the perfect for heavy use on the gnarliest, driest and most unforgiving of Australian hardwoods. The HSS edge will stand resolutely up to the most torturous timbers, all packaged in a traditionally hand forged and unmistakably Japanese chisel.

The use of incredibly tough HSS through the entire blade of the tool means that it can be made with an extremely fine cross section in larger sizes- hence the stiletto moniker.

This chisel has had it's hoop set at the factory and can be put straight to use - though a quick lick on a medium- or fine-grit waterstone would not go astray.

In our workshop testing we have found that best sharpening results have come from using Sigma waterstones, and adding a microbevel at about 30 degrees gives best edge retention.
