An innovative forging process, with state of the art compression and heat treatment techniques, has produced a very tough chisel blade with significant elasticity and a remarkably keen and durable edge, rivaling even the highest-end hand-forged Japanese sets.

The 8" intermediate length (a bit longer than traditional butt chisels) gets your hand close to the work, for precise control and enhanced feel. Finished to a very high standard, the chrome-vanadium steel blade is flat-ground, polished, then flat-ground again—with a large, oil-finished ash handle, and an end-ferrule (hoop) for striking. The handle is exceptionally comfortable, and provides a very solid grip and working feel.

The chisels are hardened to Rc61 along their entire working length, with a 30° bevel. Nominal metric sizes 12mm (1/2"), 16mm (5/8"), 20mm (3/4"), 26mm (1") and 30mm (1-1/4"), and fitted in a well-made beech case. A special gift for any woodworker!

These chisels look, feel, and work great right out of the box.

Very Satisfied
Reviewed By:   (FairLawn, NJ) 
Very well made and well finished set. Metric sizes are not important to me, however the quality of the blades is. The blades are very hard and beautifully finished. Some sharpening/lapping will be required, but the edge is straight and sharp as is, thus I expect the minimum of effort. Handles are unfinished, I just lightly waxed them to get better "feel" and keep them clean.

Absolutely impressed!
Reviewed By:   (Torrance, California) 
I was looking for a set of chisels and had a hard time deciding what to buy and from where. My experience in woodworking is next to nothing, but I've recently started an apprenticeship with a Japanese carpenter and was told Japanese tools were the way to go. I had mixed feelings about the Japanese tools because the really good ones cost an arm and a leg, and they had a reputation for being brittle (though very sharp). Being an apprentice means I have little income and need a decent set of tools to work with while learning the ropes. I am glad I came across this site and found these German made chisels. They are affordable, sharp, comfortable to use, and come in a beautifully crafted box. I tried them out the day I got them and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you for offering such a wonderful set.
