About This Item
KUNIKEI Kiridashi Bamboo 65mm White II steel Blade Knife for wood craft

Chisel is pounded by hammer all the time, so the both chisel corners have to be wrapped by Hagane (steel) to make the corner stronger (we can see it in the picture of the blade tip). This Kiridashi is also wrapped by Hagane. Even we see famous blacksmith Kiridashi, it is not so. It is extra job to do with great skill.
