Designed for the cabinetmaker, rather than the timber framer, these well balanced mortice chisels are ground with parallel sides and are taller than they are wide to help keep them straight in the cut. The Lie-Nielsen mortice chisels have handles made from tough durable hornbeam. The blades are cryogenically treated and hardened to Rockwell 60-62. Available in five sizes.
|Blade Length||115 mm|

Beautifully madeAmazingly finished chisels which are a delight to look at, hold and use. Every surface of the blade and socket is super fine ground and the socket is stamped with the makers name. The handle of Hornbeam has a lovely ripple grain on this first purchase - more to follow - and catches the light in a nice, attractive way. It's finish is exemplary.
