The Akagashi chisel represents a Japanese and Western Hybrid. The Japanese Red Oak handle and the vanadium-alloyed steel are combined to make a beautifully made and very durable tool.
These chisels have a 95 mm long blade, which is a high carbon vanadium-alloyed steel and comes very sharp and ready to use. It is mill-finished and hardened to 61 Rockwell Scale.
The thick Japanese Red Oak handle is comfortable to hold and features a strong steel hoop, which is already seated well into the Oak. The integral design allows these chisels to perform under high impact. The set comes with a dark green cotton canvas tool roll, which protects the chisels when not in use. Please see last photo.
