Man, you’re in the big time. I’m a chisel freak and that one is absolutely gorgeous. I’ve got Japanese taste on a Narex budget. I’ve got a few and I smile every time I pick them up. Congratulations!

I’ll admit I did not know who ToolsForWoodworking are, so I checked out their website.

My first laugh of the day was in their intro:

Tools for Working Wood specializes in hand tools. Classic hand tools, new hand tools, from both large old line makers and new upstarts. We stock the complete line of Festool products.

First comment is specialize in hand tools – BUT we carry the complete line of this high end fabulous power tool maker :)

So, congrats Alexandre – you will have to show us some fabulous chiseling with your new fancy toy!

I dont know…
UPDATE:
Got home today, And got to try it out! :D
When you use it for the first time, it is so sharp, that honing doesn’t do a thing.
Next things needed to be done:
set the hoop
put a secondary bevel.
