Detailed information

Product detailed description

Senkichi_kin_logo

The blades of traditional Japanese Nomi chisels (鑿) are made by laminating two-layer steel. The body itself is intentionally made of a softer material that absorbs shocks when struck with a mallet and reduces the chance of damaging the tool. However, the edge is created from extremely hard carbon steel, which in 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.

Features of the Nomi chisel

✅ Traditional Japanese Nomi chisel
✅ For general carpentry use
✅ Handmade
✅ Blade hardness 63 Rc
✅ Selected edge profile = less friction
✅ Edge at an angle = higher working depth
✅ Handle made of red oak
✅ Made in Japan

The edge is set into the handle at a slight angle, which allows for a higher working depth. The selected edge profile reduces the area that the chisel touches the processed wood and decreases material friction. At the same time, this makes the chisel easier to sharpen, and after re-sharpening, the blade maintains a straight shape. Sharpening these chisels is recommended using wet Japanese sharpening stones, which rewards you with excellent sharpness and edge durability for a long time.

The chisel's ferrule needs to be fitted before first use.
