The cabinetmaker's chisel features classic octagonal boxwood handles - the old favorites of yesteryear's discerning craftsmen. The unique "London pattern" of handle with turned finger contours, flat milled body, and graduated sizing promotes a more positive and natural grip for controlling your cuts. Fitted to finely machined bevel-edged blades, each tool has a leather "anti-shock" washer between bolster and handle, and brass ferrules to prevent handle splitting. Like all Sorby tools, each chisel is individually inspected and hardness tested to ensure you get a tool of the highest quality. Overall length 9-3/4" to 12-3/4".

  • Made in Sheffield, England

    Just received my Sorby chisel. It's a fine chisel no doubt, but the image was of a skew edge chisel and I got a straight edge. I am going to keep it as it was a great price, but I didn't really want another one. I don't think this is a Sorby issue so I don't really know how to rate this.

    Very well made.

    The sharp edges were well protected with fitted plastic covers.

    A very fine chisel

    I bought two of these, a 1/4" and a 1/2". They kind of just sat in the package for quite awhile until I needed to use them this weekend. I honed them to a mirror finish and razor sharpness and I must say that they are probably as good as anyone would ever need. They retain an edge very well and if you keep them honed, you will have great pleasure in using them.
