Set of 5 Japanese medium timber chisels / naka tataki nomi. These a slightly shorter and lighter in weight than the standard tataki / timber chisel. This size is between a timber chisel and a bench chisel.Came from a retiring Japanese carpenter. Quality set of timber chisels. Made by reputable Japanese makers that Japanese carpenters actually use. The three with the multiple back hollows are Hokkaido style blades. (slimmer profile with a large back plane). All tools are blacksmith forged and laminated. Blacksmiths name (mei) are present on all tools. The lamination lines are 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. All have excellent condition back hollows. Lots of life left in these! 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 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. Sizes are 9,15,24,29 (rare size), 42 mm.
