Thread: My first high end tool order

  1. #1

    My first high end tool order

    Well I ordered my first set of high end chisels and a couple of marking knives from Japan Woodworker. They are the Matsumura Blue Steel Bench Chisel in 1/8",1/4",1/2"and 3/4" along with a 1/2" Matsumura Blue Steel Cabinet Chisel for tighter spaces. I do have to say these are so much nicer to use than the traditional western style chisels.

    Well they're sure pretty alright

    What do you see as the differences between them and your other chisels that makes them nicer? I've never had any of the Japanese chisels like that in my hands so am curious about them.

    Ryan beat me to my question. (wondering what makes them nicer) Is there something about them, or are they just a different style of chisel and you don't have that style? (like your first mortising chisels)

    Ditto what Ryan said.

    The best way to describe it is they feel natural and at one with your hand. Like your hand is the chisel. You can hold them at any point on the chisel and it feels natural. No thought what so ever involved in how you need to hold it.
