166 - Bevel Edge Chisels - Boxwood Handle - Set of 5

Item: E1665ST



Product Description

Bevel edge chisels are the most versatile and universally used of all bench 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 bevel edge chisel. 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. Both are made from exactly the same material and produced to the same high standards of craftsmanship. Each chisel has a 25° primary bevel and a 30° for secondary bevel to easily allow or the cutting of harder woods.

For soft woods such as pine woodworkers might want to re-profile to 20° for the primary and 25° for the secondary bevels. Very hard woods such as oak might require a steeper profile (30° for primary bevel and 35° for a secondary bevel). Boxwood and rosewood sets are also now available in robust beech plywood presentation boxes.

Tools included in the cardboard presentation box:

  • 1/4 inch
  • 3/4 inch
