Japanese Chisels: How Samurai Tech Beats Modern Tools

Japanese chisels have a well-deserved reputation for being incredibly sharp, while holding their edge for a very long time. In this workshop, you'll learn how to set up and use Japanese chisels in your workshop, and how and why centuries-old blacksmithing techniques can produce a tool that outshines modern-day offerings. Other topics will include the wide variety of Japanese chisels, how to select and buy Japanese chisels (and other Japanese woodworking tools), demonstrations of techniques to get the most out of your chisels, and time for Q&A.
