What is the purpose of the hollowed back ? Are all the chisels in this set made like the one turned over? Sorry to have to ask but I am not in the $400+ per chisel tool budget category and do not know of this type of chisel.


For starters, Japan is an island nation. Raw materials like iron ore for steel are at a premium. The Japanese often only use premium steel for the cutting edge and a softer steel for the body of the cutting tool. Japanese chisels are typically made in this way, a  hard and a soft steel. The premium steel that comprises the cutting edge and the back can be extremely hard (HRC  68 range), Hollow grinding the back allows for easier flattening of the back when sharpening, since there is less surface area. I've also heard claims it's for weight/balance of the tool, although I'm not positive.

Snap On tool boxes in the $15k range in the body shop I used to be acquainted with were considered low end. For the junk tools.

Thanks Dave

I already have a trim gauge and an odd job tool. I suppose I'll throw those away and get this.  Roll Eyes
