In Japan chisels are routinely sold unsharpened and with loose hoops. Most chisels exported from Japan are send sharpened with loose hoops - as are all our Japanese chisels up to now. However, we know that in spite of our instructions on how to set the hoops on chisels some of you don't want to get involved in setting the hoops. This is especially the case for gifts for someone receiving their first set of really good chisels. You want them to start off right away using the tools properly. After some inquiry we located a shop in Japan that was able to set the hoops on the chisels by machine.
These sets are made by Iyoroi and are of essentially the same quality as our MS-JACH512.XX sets but do not carry his mark. The chisels are single scooped, shipped sharp, with the hoops set and the red oak handles properly mushroomed - ready to use. Black hand forged forged hoops have been fitted to the handles. Packed in a denim chisel roll. Made in Japan.
The 6 piece set includes the following sizes: 6mm, 9mm, 12mm, 18mm, 24mm and 30mm. The 12 piece set contains all the sizes in the 6 piece set with the following additions: 1.5mm, 3mm, 15mm, 21mm, 36mm, and 42mm.
