Made by a Japanese master blacksmith, exclusively for Rutlands®, these Japanese Tataki Nomi chisels (Nomi means chisel in Japanese) feature double-layered, ultra sharp blades with outstanding edge life.

A soft iron body is forge welded to a thinner layer of extremely hard, Rc 62-63, carbon tool steel. This double-layer prevents brittle fractures, unlike single layer Western chisels, that become brittle when hardened to extreme temperatures. The backs of the blades are hollow ground to reduce the contact surface, reducing friction and lowering the necessary cutting force. The angle of the blade to the tang increases the cutting depth to almost twice the blade length.

A conical steel ferrule, which transfers the impact to the blade, sits seamlessly between the blade and the handle to protect the handle against fracture when repeatedly hit with a hammer. The steel ferrule on the butt end of the handle should be driven down prior to use so that the hammer only makes direct contact with the Japanese red oak handle. The wood above the ferrule will eventually spread over the top of it to protect both the hammer and the reinforcing ring.

Masters of their craft, which would take an apprentice approximately 10-15 years to learn, these Japanese blacksmiths produce chisels that are unparalleled in performance even by chisels made using today's state of the art technology. This set contains 10 chisels: 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 15mm, 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 30mm, 36mm and 42mm beautifully presented in a fitted wooden box. ©

Putting some ninja in my toolbox

I have lusted after a set of japanese chisels for ages having enjoyed the workshop zen of using japanese kataba and ryoba saws. The Rutlands summer sale offered an amazing £100 off a set of 10 Tataki Nomi chisels, so I went for it. They arrived next day and just needed a few seconds on a stone to put a razor edge on each chisel. After years of rushed DIY jobs it is a great joy for me to take the time to make pieces I am proud of with quality tools. The Tataki Nomi set is samurai standard. Thanks!

Always wanted a set of Japanese chisels. These from Rutland's were at a brilliant price, very nice quality and we're a dream to get an exceptional edge on scary Sharpe with very little effort. I love the products from this store as the service and delivery are excellent.

Bought these as my first ever set of Japanese Chis...

Bought these as my first ever set of Japanese Chisels. Quite different from what I was used to but with a bit of practice they are proving far better than my old chisels. They are delightful to use and are an excellent product. The quality of advice from Rutlands in advance of the purchase was excellent.
