Detailed information

Product detailed description

The blades of traditional Japanese chisels Nomi (鑿) are made by laminating two layers of steel. The body itself is intentionally made of a softer material, which absorbs shocks when struck with a mallet and reduces the chance of damaging the tool. However, the edge is made of extremely hard carbon steel, which during production becomes a layer with a hardness of 62 Rc for classic Nomi chisels, up to a hardness of 67 Rc for Japanese chisels with HSS blades, while classic European chisels only reach 58 to 60 Rc.

Handmade Nomi chisels are created using a blacksmith welding method that was used worldwide before the advent of cheap mass-produced steel. Unfortunately, this once excellent technique is practically no longer used in chisel production outside of Japan today.
