They all were found in Japan. They are all very sharp. I wet ground them all on a 50 micron stone (both bevels and backs are flat). This set contains a variety of tool sizes: some bench chisels.
Some timber chisels (tataki nomi), a few mortising chisels (makoumachi nomi), one paring chisel (usu nomi), and a couple carving tools. Blacksmith signatures are present on nearly all tools. Very tough steel on these old chisels since steel hardens and stabilizes with time these are surely some of the most durable and trustworthy edges you can find. There's a nice variety of oak handles, some featuring rare deep red handles (hon aka gashi).Definitely a valuable selection of tools in good condition. Let me know if you have questions. 7 Bench Chisels with straight sides (oire). 2 Bench chisels with beveled sides (oire). 1 Rounded nose chisel (uchimaru).
