New Bevel Edged Design!
"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."
Hand forged vs machine made. There is no comparison. Hand forged tools are the choice of professional timber framers and log builders. Forged from modern carbon steel, their shape and socketed handle give you a satisfying handling like no other tool. Hardened and tempered to a Rockwell hardness of about 60, the edge will stay sharper, longer than a machined tool of the same hardness, by a factor of 5:1.
Hand Forged Chisels have become the first choice of professional timber framers and log home builders. They have experienced that these framing 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. Available in 1", 1½", and 2" sizes. Each chisel includes a raw-hide leather tip guard. Handles are turned from well seasoned American hickory.
