Kawasei Tsurugi Carving Tool Set, 15 pieces

Regular price $1,178.00 AUD
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. This 15-piece set contains the following chisels:

  1. flat 15mm dovetail chisel
  2. 12mm right hand skew
  3. 12mm gouge
  4. 9mm gouge

The Best Service I Have Ever Had

I have been doing business with JTA for many years and am happy to share my experience of friendly, helpful and excellent service form the experienced people are more interested in making sure the customer purchases the right tool for the job that needs to be done, rather than just making a sale and maximising profit. I rate this company as a twelve out of ten!

Kawasei Carving Tool Set, 15 piece

I purchased these chisels half a year ago; 'They are magnificent!' It's simple so; you don't want to put them out of your hands. I have to protect them for my wife (who is also a sculptour) I shal be forced to buy a second set for her ;^)
