These favorite tools of the carver and patternmaker are also great for meticulous cabinet and instrument making work. Offset 1-1/4" long tool steel blades have 5/16" cutting edges tapered back to their necks for the proper tool clearance needed in undercutting, joint work and sizing operations. 3-3/4" hardwood handles are raised for easy grasping, control, and provide freehand movement away from the workpiece. Handle color may vary from that shown. Factory sharpened and ready for use. Set includes straight chisel, right skew and left skew.

    Comments about Dog Leg Chisels, Set of 3 :

    Good design (although not exactly a new concept)but low quality in execution. Had to lap the bottoms flat and, no matter how much I tried, I could not get a sharp edge on them (and I'd rate myself as fairly proficient, but not expert, at sharpening my gouges and chisels).

    Comments about Dog Leg Chisels, Set of 3 :

    Got the 3-piece set as a gift. Used the left skewed chisel on western red cedar, a very soft wood, and the chisel broke at the thinnest part as the blade turns up at the dogleg. And no, I wasnt putting too much pressure on the tool. Have used these type chisel before on numerous occasions without problems but it was a set bought several years ago. Perhaps quality has changed. Even for a budget tool, it should not have broken so easily.

    Comments about Dog Leg Chisels, Set of 3 :

    I really liked the idea of these chisels for their size, they are helpful in small fine work like mortising small box hinges. They were fairly sharp as recieved, but before I could use them to their maximum potential, they had to be lapped flat, not unusual on chisels of any kind. but something to be aware of. Once tuned, they work great. The ferrules are cheap thin steel, and the handle generic stained hardwood is reasonably comfortable. Not fine chisels, but they do the job. Price to value, not too bad.
