19, 20 [Full size] [Full size] - From http://japan-tool.com/: "The handle material is Japanese Red Oak. This handle is made by a renowned handle maker from Sanjyo city, Kane-ei. This maker makes high quality handles for almost every famous brand from Sanjyo, including Tasai, Kunikei, Sukemaru, etc. The Red Oak used for this chisel is especially a good one, being very deep in colour."
