Add details on your woodworking projects with the help of this Japanese woodcarving chisel with a 1.5mm wide cutting edge made by Michihamono. This tool is made out of Japanese cypress wood and Blue Paper Steel (Aogami) No.2, the same material used in making Japanese swords, making it a tough and durable wood carving tool. This Japanese woodworking chisel has a very shallow sweep that is uniform in width along the entire blade.

With its 1.5-millimeter blade width, this woodworking carving chisel is great for compact projects and fine detail work. Reach for it whenever you need to flatten out a small surface after your initial chiseling is complete. The narrow blade of this tool is excellent for carving intricate patterns and grooves of the finest detail.

Approximate Dimensions & Product Data:

• Blade Material: Blue Paper Steel (Aogami) No.2
• Blade Width: 1.5mm
• Handle Material: Japanese Cypress Wood
• Handle Length: 180mm

To use this very shallow chisel, grip the handle in the palm of the right hand to push the tool on the grain of the wood. Then using the other hand, hold the middle part of the handle to guide the carving. With the left hand holding the middle part of the handle and resting on the wood, it can provide more control of the tool and prevents slipping out when the tool is pushed forward. Use body weight to help in pushing the tool. The tool will maintain its strength and integrity for longer when it is not used on hard surfaces and when it is properly oiled and stored with the cap on where applicable. Sharpen it safely and efficiently using a whetstone or oil stone, preferably one that is specifically for use with woodworking tools.

Please note: The blade edge is sharp, keep out of the reach of children. To avoid dulling the cutting edge, store without the blade contacting any hard surface.
