Set of 3 Anaya Nomi (aka Long timber Chisels). Blacksmith's name is Eikyou. Means "lasting grade" (their highest end chisels). High end workhorse set for professional timber work.
Blacksmith closed shop years ago, these are no longer available. Blade widths are: 15, 24, 48mm. I was told these were white steel #1. I believe this to be true after sharpening and use. These were forged about 30 years ago.The laminated steel has now stabilized and warping is no longer a concern. (newly forged tools will warp as they age due to the tensions inherit in laminated blades). The steel has become very tough and age hardened (aged induced conversion of austenite into martensite, resulting in a toughened crystalline matrix). Excellent condition for their age.
All 3 chisel have been sharpened on at least #5000 natural stone. Perfectly flat, razor sharp, and ready for immediate use. Some blemishes, dents, and marks from typical use; however nothing that will effect performance. The oxide scale and patina on these is incredible.Handles are straight and securely fit (no wobbling). All have well shaped back hollows.
There is one small check in the handle of the 48mm, however this is secured by the ferrule. 15mm has never been used only sharpened.They will come oiled and protected with camellia oil all natural corrosion inhibiting oil made from green tea plant. Handles are made of Japanese red oak. All 3 are stamped by handle maker's mark. These are professional grade tools. You will be impressed with the sharpness and edge retention on these.
