This listing is for a vintage ootsuki nomi (Japanese slick chisel) with a 42mm wide cutting edge. Blacksmith signature is present and legible. I sharpened this tool on a 100 micron stone. The back and bevel are flat and sharp. Could use additional honing on high grit stones if an intense level a sharpness is desired.
Blade is white steel (shirogami), Lamination nicely done. Note how the steel turns up the sides of the chisel blade, this makes for a more durable and structurally sound tool. There is no rust on any portion that it would effect the performance of this tool.Back hollow is in beautiful condition. As you can tell by the thin perimeter of the hollow, this chisel was used very little! Some surface blemishes on the hollow.
Comes oiled and protected with camellia oil all natural corrosion inhibiting oil made from green tea plant. Handle is in great shape. Made from Japanese white oak. There are some small black spots on the handle from marking ink.Please ask any questions you may have. The item "Japanese Slick Chisel42mmtsuki NomiSHARP!
