For making and touching up large wooden joins, the Japanese temple carpenter needs extra-broad blades. Only a few forgers venture to produce these formidable tools. The Japanese master blacksmith Akio Tasai ensures that each broad blade is painstakingly made by hand. This beautiful blade is particularly suitable for finishing joinery, and for countersinking fittings. The surface of this extra-wide chisel has been worked with a scraper blade. Furthermore, the chisel boasts double-layered steel with a cutting edge of Blue Paper Steel, which was forged in a charcoal furnace. Forged ferrule and hoop, Japanese red oak handle, leather case included.

    Akio and Michio Tasai

    The master smith Akio Tasai has earned himself a legendary reputation among Japan's metalworkers, especially due to his Mokume technique. His son Michio Tasai is following in the footsteps of his father, acquiring his Japanese sword-making license - the most prestigious accolade among smiths - at the age of 38 after eight years of study under the master sword smith Takano Yukimitsu. They use Blue Paper Steel, specifically manufactured according to their needs, to manufacture the cutting layer of their tools, as this particular steel remains easy to sharpen despite its hardness.
