Timber Framing Corner Chisel 1"
This timber framing chisel is hand forged from high carbon 9260 spring steel. After precise and careful hardening tempering and annealing, the edge reaches Rockwell 58-60 (HRC). Final sharpening is done on a felt disc using chrome oxide compound to give the tool a razor sharp edge. A traditional mixture of beeswax, linseed oil and pine turpentine is used on the steel to provide an anti-rust finish.
The handle is hand lathed elm that is tightly fitted into the cone of the socket and glued in with an epoxy glue. Each chisel handle is made individually to fit the socket dimensions precisely. The handles are also treated with linseed oil and beeswax. Each chisel comes with a handmade, custom dyed saddle tan leather blade guard.
