This listing is for an antique ootsuki nomi (48mm wide cutting edge). I sharpened this tool on a 100 micron stone. The back and bevel are flat and sharp.
Steel is very hard due to age hardening austenite turns to martensite over time. So you'll find a very dependable edge on this old chisel. Id estimate it to be around 65 years old. Some minor rust blemishes and patina due to its old age. There is no rust on any portion that it would effect the use of this tool.
Very nice back hollow; the carpenter who used it cared for it and sharpened it well. Still tons of life left in this chisel.
Comes oiled and protected with camellia oil all natural corrosion inhibiting oil made from green tea plant. Handle is in great shape. Made of Japanese white oak.
