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.
This chisel has 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 this chisel to perform under high impact. The set comes in a cotton canvas tool roll, which protects the chisels when not in use.
