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.

The flared blades of these 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.

They 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; they are canted for surface clearance. The tapered, socket-like ferrules reinforce the blade-to-handle connection.

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