This beautiful laminated Japanese timber framer's slick chisel is used for fine tuning large scale joinery.
Made by the same guys that produce our Japanese paring chisels, some will be marked and others not, depending on the seniority of the smith that made them, but all have been inspected and passed by a master Japanese blacksmith.
The blade is canted to clear the neck and handle, so the effective cutting depth is unlimited.
Overall length 58cm (just under 2 feet)
Blade width 54mm (just over 2")
