Description

In Detail

Woodworkers love wood, so we decided to fit these Rider bevel edge chisels with handles made from dense European Hornbeam, chosen for its resilience. Sanded smooth and given 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 and 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 bevel edge chisel and ground with a narrower land on each side, a little over 1mm. This allows much improved clearance when working into a corner such as cleaning dovetails. The blades are approximately 100mm long with the overall length varying between 265mm to 280mm. European made.
