Made by reputable Japanese makers that Japanese carpenters actually use. Set includes all standard sizes of bench chisel. A few feature multiple back hollows.
All tools are blacksmith forged and laminated. The lamination lines are very clean and well shaped (note how the high carbon steel turns up the sides of the chisel for added strength and durability - this is a hallmark of a well made J chisel). Backs and bevels have been flattened and sharpened on a 100 micron stone. No dents or chips to cutting edges. Very tough age hardened steel on these old chisels.(over time forge laminated steel will harden as the austenite converts to martensite). Steel molecules become very interlocked and durable. All tools have nice even high carbon steel lamination lines. Due to the antique nature of a few of these tools, there is some surface corrosion and blemishes from years of use. This however is entirely aesthetic, since it does not occur on or near the cutting edges and will thus not impact their performance.
Handles are made from an assortment of white and red Japanese oak, black ebony, as well as yellow goumi wood. Quite a varied selection of bench chisels. There are 3 different blade profiles: mentori (chamfered), kaku-uchi (box shape / right angled sides), and shinogi (triangular, dovetail). Sizes are 3,6,9,12,15,18,24,30,36,42 mm.
