"tiny wedges and tiny chisels for spliting stone"2021.5.12.I created stone spliting tools which are tiny wedge and tiny chisel for spliting a small stone or small river stone. I used to make chisels and wedges, and also tempering these on the forge at stone sculpture's atelier in Joshibi University of Art and Design. These made by broken rods for smallest air chipping hammer. I think these are original tools, and also we can't find these tools in anyplace of the world.
