Our professional carving tools are made by the firm Henry Taylor Tools Ltd. of Sheffield. They are hand forged, which results in a fine-grained steel that holds an edge well and will last a lifetime if given normal care. They have brass ferrules and select beech handles. Due to the hand forging, sizes are nominal and shapes may vary slightly. They come with a factory grind and require sharpening and final honing.
These chisels are flat with no curvature.
The straight chisels are ground straight across the end of the blade, while the skew chisels are ground at an angle (about 23°).
