The 'oire-nomi' from Fujikawa, translated as 'regular chisel', is the standard size and style most woodworkers think of when they think of Japanese chisels. This one has a boxwood handle.
Based in Miki city, Hyogo and established in 1930, Fujikawa Manufacturing started out making only mortising chisels, which were held in high regard among door and window makers for their dependable, no nonsense quality.
Fujikawa offers a full line of specialized chisels such as paring chisels, premium hand finished chisels and surprisingly, a line of laminated and forged steel chisels. Using a specially selected Hitachi patent steel (YXR-7), these PM HSS chisels are, without question, some of the toughest, most durable chisels available in the world today and made for the most demanding tasks. However, they still possess the core principles of a traditional Japanese chisel being relatively easy to sharpen with most conventional sharpening methods, something often missed by makers of similar, extreme duty edge tools.
The 'oire-nomi', translated as 'regular chisel' is the standard size and style most woodworkers think of when they think of Japanese chisels.
With their modest size and hooped handles, they are a general purpose chisel suitable for cabinetry, carpentry and general woodworking.
