Rounded bevel fixed to 26deg, perfectly flat and polished with Okudo Suita. Uraoshi (back flattening) is done as well. Handle polished and oiled. The hoop lowered. The hoop has a bit of scratches, but apart from that this chisel is basically brand new.
The steel is quite well forged White Steel #2 (quite hard but not impossibly as hard as White Steel #1) a high quality Japanese pure carbon steel that yields highly keen edge, and it is easier to sharpen compared to Aogami alloy steel (Blue Steel). It is relatively easy to sharpen and should sharpen to a very sharp edge. Suited for up to hard woods but not for hardest. If you use hardest timbres please ask me for an alloy chisels.
Kuroura (blackback). Sign of quality tool.
Rounded bevel fixed, and polished with my best Okudo Suita.
