Description

Developed over the last few years and one of the last projects our friend and colleague Tim Rinehart worked on before his passing, these Swiss Made Chisels are really special. First, they’re crafted from the finest Tool Steel, expertly ground on all sides with a 25° main bevel and a 30° micro bevel on the cutting edge. But what good is a blade without a proper handle? In this case, Elm was chosen for its’ beauty while an octagonal shape with a sight ovoid is used for improved control and comfort. The overall effect is the perfect union of old world craftsmanship, modern materials and the desire to create (what we think) may just be the perfect bench chisel. Set includes the following: 6mm, 10mm,12mm, 16mm, 19mm and 26mm chisels and a tool roll.

WOOD magazine review

Sharp out of the box and long-lasting

Review Summary

These Swiss-made chisels were sharpest out of the box, with a mirror-polished finish and microbevel. They sharpened easily and held an edge longer than most of the O1 carbon-steel chisels in the test. We like the grippability of the eight-sided elm handles, but would prefer a smoother transition where the octagonal facets taper to meet the ferrule.
