Kawasei Tsurugi Carving Tool Set, 15 pieces

Select currency:

Each chisel has white Japanese oak handles and is made with number 2 blue paper steel, laminated with soft iron.
Kawasei is a well known blacksmith from Niigata.
The chisels are used for medium to heavy work. Therefore, they have no iron hoop and cannot be struck with a steel hammer. They can, however, definitely be hit with a timber mallet.
These chisels are used for light finishing work involving printmaking, traditional mass carving in Japan e.g. relief carving, print block.
They can also be used for medium sized carving e.g. free standing sculptures as the timber handles and the construction of the chisel can be hit with a wooden mallet.
