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

    Very nice

    Very nice slick. Just used it to hog out a stem for a boat I'm building. Plenty big enough! Back didn't require all that much honing. Hollow ground edge was easy to sharpen. Edge not that perpendicular to sides, but that isn't all that critical in a slick.
