I am looking at some White or blue edge chisels, but have been told Japanese chisels chip easily and do not perform well in hardwoods ?, examples of hardwood timbers I use in Australia have Jenka ratings from 3,900 to 5,060 lbf in comparison American timbers, Hard Maple 1,450 lbf , Hickory 1.850 lbf, Black Walnut 1,010lbf any suggestions ?

I'll look for one. Thinking one japanese dovetail chisel or longer paring chisel. Also looking for an E.A. Berg, Witherby, Swan and Greenlee socket chisels of the various sizes to make a set with mismatched steel but custom matching handles. Something nice to tie them all together. This is more fun to me than buying a full set when I will only really use 4 or 5 really quality ones most often.

What up Samurai. Just an FYI regarding my first experience using eBay. So been saving up for a set of Japanese chisels, which after several months of looking I bid on a set that cost me $200 plus $75 for shipping. Well it has been 45 days since ordering and I have not received the chisels. Emailed the sender(from Japan) who speaks little to zero English, so most of his response have been difficult figure out exactly what he is trying to tell me. All that said, I am at my whits end and am about to called ebay in hope of getting a refund.Kinda sad as I was quite excited about getting my first set of chisels. Would still prefer Japanese chisels over other styles but am frighten to go thru Japan at this point. Hey, any advice you can give that would be great. CNN

You say Japanese Chisels are a combination of USA and European design being socket and tang we are barely over 200+ years. How old is Japan? LoL.... I Will say it for you, Japanese Chisels are the best by far and for you comment readers check out Japan Woodworker you can do some research and pick your blacksmith for blue steel or white steel at a surprisingly great price.

Can I use bench chisels for making dove tails? or do I need special dovetail chisels like Shinogi Oire Nomi?

eBay is the WORST place to shop for tools like this. It's a combination of scam products or bait titles that aren't really a Japanese tool. Or, a Japanese value tool that you could get from Japan Woodworker (or the like), but they're selling them on eBay for more money. Or, listings for "Antique" or "Vintage" Japanese chisels that are beat all to hell and worth maybe ten bucks and they want $50-$100.

MAYBE one good listing comes up a couple times a year, but who has time to troll eBay nonstop for a year in hopes the deal comes up?

You are a wizard, and you almost sound like a wand salesman from Harry Potter. So let me ask you this, "Does the chisel choose the carpenter?"

Don’t say “harder’, say less brittle. Low 50’s HRc is hard to sharpen, doesn’t hold an edge well, and the edge wears quickly.
Wether cutlery or chisels, HRc in the low 60’s (my favorite is 61.5) is the best most well rounded steel. MAC or Morimoto make phenomenal blades.

Japanese chisels are AWESOME! But there are some $400+ sets that rock then you know how they have been taken care of from day one. But first buy basic auction chisels at auction so you learn how to care for them.

I've gone through all those stages of "cheap," and then "cheap Japanese" and finally good Japanese. There is no going back. They are worth every penny you spend on them. Your explanation was easy to digest. Thanks.

Hi Jesse, can you tell me the difference between hybrid, temple, dovetail and orie nomi chisels. I am looking to get a starter set of 3 or 4 chisels and building from there. Any advise would be appreciated.

Cheers

I never buy anything from Amazon since the 1900's I support the small local shops, I don't be leave in ship our economy out the door, and I thank my regular customers are have been loyal to me for the past 27 years, the hoarer story's I have heard and seen from Amazon, every time I hear that name, the hair on my back stands up, how so many are ripped off by them, never mind the crap products the feed you, making you think your sooo safe ordering from them,, hell you want a good deal, go to a dollar store and you get the same thing but with the personal service

I have never understood the idea of the
"ura". It is said that it disappears gradually as you grind the back
face of the steel, but I have worked almost 50 years with chisels and I have never ever
grinded the back face. It should not be necessary. You grind the bevel, nothing
else. I think Japanese chisels are beautiful, but I have always found the ura annoying.

Hi Jesse. I'm planning on ordering myself a few good bevel edge chisels but I'm a bit in the dark as to which sizes I should get. I don't think it's necessary to buy a complete set. What would you say are the most commonly used sizes in a standard workshop?
