Blue Spruce Bench Chisels
Blue Spruce Toolworks Bench Chisels are some of the finest quality chisels available today. They are specifically designed for heavy duty use and should be your first set of chisels. Made with both a strong socket and a deep tang construction, they are stronger than most traditional bench chisels and are nicely balanced. The handles are designed to provide a comfortable, secure grip for precision, fatigue-free work. The handles are hard, figured maple that has been infused with acrylic to fill every cell. This makes an extremely dense and tough handle that can take pounding from a mallet. The finely machined blades are 5 inches long and 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) thick at the bolster and taper down to the bevel. The side bevels terminate with a very small side edge land which allows use in the sharpest dovetail corners. The blades are made from A2 tool steel which is some of the finest steel available for edge tools today. It is hardened and tempered in a computer controlled vacuum furnace to a hardness of Rc61. The cutting edge is ground and honed at a 30 degree angle.
