Details

For our WoodRiver® Bevel Edge Socket Chisels we looked to the past and to the present for inspiration. Details of classic chisels by Stanley, Keen Cutter, Buck Brothers, Swan and Witherby were considered, along with options of modern materials and processes.Particular attention was paid to specific areas resulting in a chisel optimized for detailed woodworking. Flatness of the back is quality controlled to specific tolerances. This means less preparation when sharpening “out of the box.” The transition from the “flat” of the back to the socket is designed with a gradual slope. This prevents the back of the chisel from abruptly lifting on longer paring operations. The side bevels sweep back towards the centerline, allowing the chisel access to tight corners, which is especially important for dovetail work. The resulting flat area or “land” is a consistent 0.7mm – narrow enough for tight access but wide enough to prevent an uncomfortable sharp edge. The complete tool is designed with balance in mind to increase comfort and effectiveness. Each chisel incorporates a lightly finished hardwood handle fitted to the socket. Our end result is a chisel that will give years and years of service and will become a favorite in your shop.
