MR. Tasai hand smide stämjarn
Width 90 mm, blade length 60 mm, overall length 230 mm.
To pre-cut and finish large wood joints. Japanese temple carpenters traditionally use extra wide chisels known as Habahiro Nomi. There are only a limited number of blacksmiths that still know how to forge these cult hand tools. Master Akio Tasai carefully forges each Habahiro Nomi by hand to ensure the large blade is fully stress-relieved and will perform at the highest level possible.
Double-layered steel, forged in a charcoal fire, carefully shaped with a scraping iron (sen), forged hoops, red oak handles.
