It's possible that it's just the tip of an iron or brand new chisel, but most japanese tools have probably been heated in a more even heat and don't have the tip burning that quickly made induction hardened tools can have.

My tempering success rate so far is 100% (as in, in any tool that is well finished enough that it was intended for professionals, there's never been a failure due to the chipping just being due to the tool being junk). It's a shame that otherwise really superb tools were cast aside when all they needed was a tad more tempering.
