Japanese Chisels

What Are Japanese Chisels?

Japanese chisels are tools used for carving or making mortises in wood. The type we make is designed to be struck with a hammer on the back of the handle where a hoop is located.

At Kakuri, our Japanese chisels are manufactured by joining soft and hard steel, making it easy to sharpen and providing a durable cutting edge. We also make Western-style chisels entirely of steel (zenkou).

Our chisels are available individually and in sets....

Bench Chisels That Hold Their Edge

Featuring a razor-sharp, durable chisel blade made with Japanese high-carbon steel and a heavy-duty Japanese oak handle that offers excellent wear resistance from repeated blows with a hammer, our traditional Japanese bench chisels, or oire nomi, are designed to meet the everyday demands of your workshop.

The chamfered blade provides less resistance than Western chisels, which makes it easier to achieve professional results.
