Traditional Framing and Bench Chisels

Shaped along the lines of traditional, century old designs, we have created a new tool forged entirely from one round billet.

It feels very balanced in the hand and is delivered with the edge sharpened and polished.

About our chisels

We all start out with machine-made chisels, and then find out quickly that the edge gives way within a very short time. How pleasant then to discover that our hand-forged chisels will go on for hours and days before you need to touch up the edge with a hone, 15 seconds and you are good to go again. Hand-forged chisels will take and hold a superior edge that will last longer, reducing muscle strain. Hand forged from modern carbon steel, with a flat back, slight beveled edge and a comfortable socket handle, they are a must for mortise and tenon work.

All our hand-forged chisels follow the line of design of turn-of-the-century tools, in their shape and unique socketed handle. But whereas those old tools, until the advent of "silver steel", were most often forge-laminated steel, our blacksmiths use modern carbon steel. This allows them to create a sleeker, somewhat lighter, yet tougher tool. Our hand-forged tools are a delight to hold and to work with.

Our handles are turned from well seasoned, dry hard wood: American hickory, or on request, ash, oak, and custom or exotic made to order: cherry, purple heart etc. They offer a larger, palm-of-your-hand sized grip and are treated with all-natural LAND ARK wood finish. Choose from a short or long handle. You will notice the special attention placed on the correct placement of all ferrules, the tapered fit and folded over and hammered end grain, precisely fitted to withstand blows with a mallet.

Tip guards and holsters — Protect your investment with a high-quality, handcrafted leather guard made of saddle-grade leather which is stitched and riveted. Tip guards available for framing and bench chisels, choose also one with a tie-string or a belt holster. Tip guards for slicks and chisels come with ABS plastic backing inserts.
