Every tool has a small indentation, our ‘hallmark’ and your guarantee, that each chisel has been diamond hardness tested before it leaves the factory. Bench chisels are the most versatile and universally used of all chisels and should form an integral part of any woodworker’s toolkit. They can be used either free-hand making a gentle paring cut or with light mallet strokes. Side bevels reduce the risk of binding in the cut as well as allowing access to undercuts, like dovetails. Not recommended for heavy duty applications. Robert Sorby offers two styles of bench chisels. Woodworkers can choose between a traditional bolster and ferrule design with leather washer or opt for our elegant gilt edge tapered bolster and ferrule form. Both designs are popular and offer slightly different grip preferences. Blades are forged from special Sheffield steel with precision ground flat backs to ensure smooth, straight cuts. Special alloy ensures that perfect balance of toughness, edge retention and sharpness. These blades feature gilt edge tapered bolsters and solid brass ferrules. The handles and blades are accurately aligned by a large tang, seated deeply in the handle for extra security and strength. Finely ground bevels ensure accurate cutting in corners. Each tool marked with size for ease of identification. Comes in cardboard presentation box.
