Oouchi 3 mm Dovetail Chisel.
I've just received my latest batch of dovetail chisels from Mr Oouchi in Japan.
Due to a number of requests I now have in stock the 3 mm chisel which I am selling separately from the set, see my website. It's not a size I use very much but is ideal for getting into tight spaces such as the corners of half blind dovetail sockets. For those interested it comes with a warning, this is a delicate thing and must be handled with care, it is for paring and not prying or whacking with a hammer!
Mr Oouchi wasn't happy making such a delicate chisel and needed some persuasion. He has however done a fine job and it's a lovely thing to behold and use.
