Description

In Detail

Woodworkers love wood, so we decided to fit our Rider bevel edge chisels with handles made from dense European Hornbeam, chosen for its resilience. Sanded smooth and a light oil finish, the Hornbeam has a superb feel in the hand. The wider chisels have slightly larger handles to maintain balance across the range of sizes. It is a subtle difference, but enough to make each chisel feel 'right' in the hand. Each handle ends in a polished stainless steel ferrule with a shock absorbing leather washer between the handle and the chisel’s bolster.

The blades are fine-grained, chrome manganese steel, carefully hardened and tempered to 59 HRC. Sharpened and ground with a 25° bevel, the blades require only final honing to achieve a fine, long lasting edge (we suggest a 30° micro-bevel). In cross section, the blades are slimmer than a standard chisel with a narrower land on each side, to a little over 1mm. This allows much improved clearance when working into a corner such as cleaning dovetails. Supplied in a strong wooden case; this 6-piece set comprises the following sizes: 6mm, 10mm, 12mm, 16mm, 20mm and 25mm. The blades are approximately 100mm long with the overall length varying between 265mm to 280mm. European made.

Jury still out

This is the first set of chisels I have bought for 50 years; thought it time to rest some of my old favourites. First impression was good, especially considering the price. The handles fit into the hand nicely, the bevel is good, the balance is good. I was attracted to the leather shock absorber / cushion between blade flange and ferrule. The 'independent' review was satisfactory. But, on only the second or third outing using the 10 mm chisel the leather absorber / cushion simply slid down the blade, it looked like a washer that had been put there as a cosmetic feature. The reason for saying the jury is out is because Ive not had opportunity to use any of the chisels for a prolonged time. However, each time I have used any of the blades they seem to pick up a nick on the cutting edge or lose their edge very quickly. Honestly, I am only cutting wood! Perhaps the steel is on the soft side! I will continue to use, but not yet hand my old chisels on.

Great Chisels but require some work

These chisels are great and you can buy additional sizes if you wish from axminster. Off the shelf they come covered in some kind of lacquer which was initially a nightmare to get off. I ended up using a paint and varnish remover carefully applied to remove majority of lacquer and then working them with wet and dry paper on a glass plate prior to taking them anywhere near my stones. This seemed to work a treat and I could not be happier with the result.

Ok, these chisels look great and temper seems good within price range. I'm a site joiner and build in work shop too. I just wish there were more than 6 in the set? Or ,, at least the option to buy outside the deal , to build up the set. Great set set though.
