Detailed Description

Sokozarai Nomi Scraping Chisel, Bottom Cleaning

We offer two specialty Japanese mortise chisels for follow up after the mortise chisel has chopped the waste into pieces: Sokozarai Nomi and Nori Nomi. The super-hard laminated edges of Japanese mortise chisels are not used for prying out the waste as western chisels do. Instead, these two specialty chisels clear away, cut and scrape.

The harpoon-shaped tip of the Mori Nomi is driven into the waste and yanked straight out to pop chips & fragments clear of the mortise. (The more thoroughly chopped the mortise, the better the mori nomi works.) Shoji makers working in fairly soft wood then scrape the bottom of the mortise flat and clean with the Sokozarai Nomi, which can be used with one or both hands for precise control.

Overall length is 8-1/4". Width is 4.5mm (3/16").
