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 lengths 9-3/4" to 12-3/4", blade lengths 4" to 4-3/4". Set of nine includes 1/8", 1/4",3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 2".

    Best of Many Sets Owned

    The primary purpose of any wooding tool is working wood. I own five sets of chisels and the Sorby Cabinet Makers are my go to set and have been since 1999. These chisels hold there edge better than any others (including historic Stanley's). Do the rings come off? Sometimes. Can they take heavy use? Without reservation -- YES.

    Disappointing Fit and Finish

    Blades look and work great. For the price, I expected a finely finished wooden handle and solid construction. At least four of the chisels in the set had brass rings on the striking end that literally fell off coming out of the package - these will need to be re-glued. The Sorby logo looks cheap, with runny ink and the handles just don't have the quality feel one would expect from a high-end chisel set. As for the edges - they were ready to go out of the box - razor sharp and they hold a good edge.
