Hello Jim,

Great to hear from you!! Hope things are going OK for you. The lady you asked about is Kayoko Kuroiwa. She retired from tool selling after the passing of Yataiki, and is now heavily involved with grandchildren. She would be very pleased to hear from you! If you need contact info, email me at

fwhorne@twc.com.

The chisel maker is Chutaro Imai. He is now represented by Hida Tool. He makes two lines of chisels: Fujihiro, from (I think) white steel #2, and ‘mokume’ or ‘sword steel’, from white #1. Both tempered very hard, unless he has changed.
