Eight old Japanese chisels NOMI get back to life.
A little travel from trash to treasure…
This post is from the Eight old Japanese chisels NOMI get back to life blog.
I bought some tools from a guy in Japan, these eight chisels was why I did it.
Why do this?
To try and understand these Japanese chisels, to see the different types, to try and use different types – yes I am curious and want to learn and this was the only force for this. And since I could not go to a flee marked, this was the second best solution.
1. The chisels after the travel.
2. As they looked when they arrived.
3. Some seemed almost hopeless.
4. Sucking oils to bring back lost life.
5. The old souls brought back.
6. In the new rack, ready to be used and enjoyed.
The chisels seem to perform really well, they all get really sharp and hold a good edge, so I look forward to bring them to their limits and see how well they perform!
