Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email info@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

Description

It's impossible to write a dispassionate description of these beautiful chisels.

Handmade with Shirogami (white paper steel) #1 edges, these chisels are beautifully finished and leave the factory with excellent tolerances to flat on their back, and a very well prepared bevel.

While they require final setup by the user (as with all Japanese chisels), we have found them to be a very easy tool to set up due to their excellent finish.

Their handles have already had their hoops fitted, reducing the work needed to be done by their eventual owner.

The Kikuhiromaru's propensity to take a great edge and hold onto it is phenomenal. We have found them capable of heavy morticing in even the most arduous of Aussie hardwoods without any difficulties, and they will take a shave-ready edge that hangs around far longer than it has any right to.

Available for purchase individually or as a comprehensive 10 piece set that includes 3mm, 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, 18mm, 24mm, 30mm, 36mm and 42mm sizes and ships with a chisel roll to keep them protected should they need to travel.

Nice chisels, reasonable price.

A while ago I was searching for a good reasonably priced set of chisels for general woodworking and cabinetry. After considerable research and a chat with Mitch from Japanese Tools Australia, I settled on the set of 10 Kikuhiromaru bench chisels. I’ve just given them their hardest challenge yet, cutting a 100x30mm mortise through 90mm merbau. Merbau is very hard on tools and have previously left large chips in the edges of some of my expensive chisels to my great disappointment. The Kikuhiromaru’s sliced through the timber and left the edges almost as sharp as when I started and not a chip in sight. I was pretty impressed.
They were easy to set up and sharpen, and maintain a great edge for longer than they have any right to. I’m a happy camper and would recommend these chisels to anyone interested in a good quality tool at a reasonable price.

Quality chisel

I've owned the 24mm for around 2 years now. Beautifully crafted, nice even lamination across the bevel, you don't need anymore than this. Setup was easy, sharpens wonderfully to produce fine whispy shavings or quick deep, clean cuts to the second knuckle of my non-dominant middle finger, severing the nerve. Don't get complacent, though it still makes me smile whenever I reach for this beauty.

A good value chisel.

I bought a 30mm to share the load with my 30mm Ouchi which is my absolute favourite and most used chisel. It's a bit lighter , not as hefty as an Ouchi, but it holds a very good edge and has nice balance. Strikes well. If you want the very best and most durable edge, pay the extra for Ouchi, but this brand is a close second. Very impressed. Well worth the money.
