Bench chisels. Set of 6
This set of bench chisels is hand forged from high carbon 9260 spring steel. After precise and careful hardening tempering and annealing, the edges reach Rockwell 60-61 (HRC). Final sharpening is done on a felt disc using chrome oxide compound to give the tools razor sharp edges. A traditional mixture of beeswax, linseed oil and pine turpentine is used on the steel to provide an anti-rust finish.
The handles are hand lathed Palisander that are tightly fitted into the cone of the socket and glued in with an epoxy glue. Each tool handle is made individually to fit the socket dimensions precisely. The handles have a leather inlay with full grain cow hide leather. The handles are also treated with linseed oil and beeswax. They have handforged rings with a special pin passing through to avoid any moving.
A special elm box for this set of bench chisels is included. It has leather holsters and leather strap closing.
