Push chisels are driven by hand for paring cuts and fine fitting of joints. Produced with great care and attention to detail, these are hand forged at Koyamaichi Blade Works, a family-owned business that has made reliable, practical woodworking tools for over a century. All have laminated blades that combine a high-carbon Yasuki white steel face (hardened to Rc65-66) with a softer steel back for strength. The long red oak handles offer comfortable grip and improve control; all are canted for surface clearance. The tapered, socket-like ferrules reinforce the blade-to-handle connection.

The bevel-edged paring chisels are superbly balanced for precise control, with a center of gravity at or just below the blade shoulder. Their long necks allow you to make cuts at a distance from an edge, especially useful when dressing tenons, flush-trimming projections or cleaning the sides of a mortise.

The handle of the cranked-neck chisels (kotenomi or "trowel chisels" in Japanese) has a 40mm offset (about 1-1/2") that gives excellent clearance for working in deep recesses, such as dadoes and sliding dovetail housings. The short blade and sharply angled neck allow good access and maneuverability in tight spaces, and the blade has a triangular cross section that allows work adjacent to angled shoulders.

The flared blades of the fishtail chisels reach into corners you would normally need right and left skew chisels to access. Particularly good for cleaning up half-blind dovetail sockets, they also help with work adjacent to angled sides where the shoulder of a regular chisel would get in the way. The long, thin neck makes them easy to maneuver, even in narrow sockets.

As these chisels are hand forged, they may vary in size by ±1mm. Approximate Imperial sizes listed in brackets..
