Barr Quarton has been working with tool steel for over 18 years, and has applied his knowledge and skill to making the finest hand-forged, individually tempered, woodworking tools available. In a day and age where most tools are drop-forged, stamped or cut out and then poorly tempered, a majority of people have never had the pleasure of using a hand-forged tool. Hammer forging packs the steel, producing a very fine-grained, dense metal. This process also introduces more carbon into a smaller area. As a result you get a blade with remarkable edge-holding ability without being brittle. Chisels feature fitted socket handles, steel ferrules, and are delivered shaving sharp!

  • Hand-forged tool steel
  • Individually tempered
  • Steel ferrules
  • Fitted socket handles

    The Best barring None

    Have owned one for over 20 years, no other chisel made today even comes close, I have used many....Best chisel I have for holding an edge...better than most of my 100 year old laminated chisels....Have seen them made, these are hand forged, one at a time....Very good simple handle design, easy to make a replacement, however I have not needed to yet....Chuck M.
