Yeung Chan, a California cabinetmaker whose work has been published in many magazines, designed these chisels for his own use.
As he taught seminars around the country, he was frequently asked where such chisels could be bought. To shorten the story, he came to us and we asked knife maker Paul Beebe (who makes several other tools for us) to make them of O1 tool steel. Of course, each is hand made and is intended to be used only with hand force.
There are three dovetail-style chisels (bevel-edged to a narrow land on each side), one trimming chisel that tapers to a slim wedge for all sorts of fine paring, and a 1/16" wide tapered chisel executed in a mortise-chisel shape to give it the required stiffness for such a narrow chisel.
The pau ferro octagonal handles afford excellent control in use. The chisels come beautifully honed, ready for use.
Because of the hand labor involved, these will always be in limited supply. They are a delight to own and use.
