About Japanese Chisels
With their forge welded blade, hollow back and socket ferrule / tang mounted hardwood handles, Japanese chisels are distinctly different in construction to Western chisels. This does not mean that are either superior or inferior, after all, they virtually do the same job. They are simply the Japanese approach, built upon hundreds of years of tool making tradition.

About Umeki Oire Nomi Chisels
Umeki Oire Nomi chisels feature a Red Oak hardwood handle matched with a steel hoop. They are designed for striking with a metal hammer or wooden mallet. The chisel blade is thin and features a very wide chamfer on both upper edges that meet at the centreline of the blade. This makes the Umeki chisel light, easy to handle and very versatile. Japanese chisels are assembled using a combined socket ferrule and tang design making them very secure and long lasting. Umeki Oire Nomi chisels are used for a broad range of detailed tasks including dovetailing, cleaning up joinery and inlaying.
