Product Information:

Developed over the last few years and one of the last projects our friend and colleague Tim Rinehart worked on before his passing, these Swiss Made Chisels are really special. First, they’re crafted from the finest Tool Steel, expertly ground on all sides with a 25° main bevel and a 30° micro bevel on the cutting edge. But what good is a blade without a proper handle? In this case, Elm was chosen for its beauty while an octagonal shape with a sight ovoid shape is used for improved control and comfort. The overall effect is the perfect union of old world craftsmanship, modern materials and the desire to create (what we think) may just be the perfect bench chisel. Set includes the following: 6mm, 10mm,12mm, 16mm, 19mm and 26mm chisels and a tool roll.



  • Electronically hardened alloy chrome-vanadium steel blade

  • European hardwood octagonal square tang handle

  • 6 piece set

  • Swiss Made

  • Finely ground and polished

    Comments about pfeil Swiss made Cabinetmakers Bench Chisels, 6 piece :

    I received this set as a retirement gift after two months of waiting. Wood handles look like they were shaped directly from a tree, no apparent sanding. Maybe dipped in oil? Because they are engraved, I'm afraid to sand and varnish the handles. Can't say anything about the quality of the blades yet but they appear to have been flattened about half an inch from the tips. Disappointed that Pfeil would do this and have the Swiss Made so proudly imprinted

    Comments about pfeil Swiss made Cabinetmakers Bench Chisels, 6 piece :

    The overall quality of the set that I received is very poor. The handles are sanded against the grain with either 60 or 80 grit sandpaper and then stained orange. They stopped polishing the blades half way through the job. After light use, they have small nicks in the edges of the blades already. ( just made a small notches in 3/4 poplar)I bought a set of their butt chisels and they are near perfect, like surgical instruments, so I don't understand why the quality is so poor.
