Detailed information

Product detailed description


YOSHIHIRO – a manufacturer of traditional Japanese tools and equipment used for precise craftsmanship. It produces both traditional and modernized carpentry tools.

Marusukui Nomi マルスクイ鑿 a chisel shape used for shaping the inner curve and carving in hard-to-reach places. It is made in various radii and widths. A traditional motif in Japanese woodworking is the precise processing of a wooden board so that it fits tightly around a column or natural element, such as a stone or tree trunk.  

The blades of traditional Japanese chisels Nomi 鑿 – are made by joining two layers of steel. The body of the chisel is intentionally made of soft steel, which absorbs impacts when struck with a wooden mallet or metal hammer, thus reducing the chance of damaging the tool. However, the edge is made of extremely hard carbon steel, which during manufacturing becomes a layer with a hardness of 62 HRC for classic Nomi chisels, up to 67 HRC for Japanese chisels with HSS blades, while classic European chisels achieve a hardness of only 58 to 60 HRC.

The steel ferrule, a metal ring at the end of the handle of Japanese chisels, needs to be precisely fitted before first use, to prevent the wooden end of the handle from splitting under the blows of a mallet.
