Woodblock Tools
Josei Hira To (straight chisel)

Josei Hira To
straight chisel

Please note that 1.5mm and 2.0mm blades are very thin and they break easily if used with too much force. The metal is strong, but there is not very much of it in these small blades. Recommended for experienced carvers only.

Special Order
Hira To larger than 18.0mm are available by special order only. If you order one of these large sizes, it will be ordered when we place our next tool order with our supplier in Japan. Please allow three to six months for delivery. You will be charged for the tool plus shipping from McClain's to you when you place the order. Once the order has been placed with the craftsman in Japan, there are no returns or refunds.
