The Chisel Blade is made by WATATOKU by Mr. Yasuhiro Watanabe. Yasuhiro san is over 75 years old. He has extensive experience in chisel (Nomi) making as a blacksmith in Yoita town (now Nagaoka City). Nagaoka city is one of the most famous woodworking tool blacksmiths area in Japan. WATATOKU has been making mainly hand-forged chisels for quite some time now. Unfortunately, Yasuhiro san does not have a skilful successor and so it will be interesting to see what will next happen in regards to the production of this beautiful chisel.

An excellent Chisel

I purchased this a few days ago and it's wonderful! I just used it for very carefully paring away the edges of the mulga fretboard on the guitar I'm making and I fully recommend it! Also, Japanesetools.com.au offer such a fantastic and prompt service!
