Full disclosure, I have no records of exactly how much I paid for this or where I got it from (most likely Iida Tools or So at JapanTool). I've had it for years (from before the start of my spreadsheet hence the lack of info). Used it on one project, sharpened it once following said project, been sitting in a closet ever since. Carbon steel, pretty sure it's a blue variety, but I honestly can't be sure. I do remember that it was handmade, by a specialist chisel maker. I provided specs below. Please ask if you have any other questions, I will answer as best I can.

Priced at $225. Pretty sure I paid more, but like I said, I have no records, so apologies.

End of Handle to Tip- 465mm
Top of Handle to Tip- 280mm
Length of Blade portion- 160mm
Width of edge- 25mm (approx 1 inch)
