Produced by one of Germany’s oldest tool-making firms, these professional-quality chisels are the style traditionally favored by European carvers. The natural finish hornbeam handles have excellent impact resistance, and their octagonal shape gives a secure grip and prevents rolling on the bench. The fully polished blades are hand forged from high-carbon steel, hardened to Rc61 for durability, and require only final stropping.
The chisels have no curvature and come in straight or skew patterns. The straight chisels are ground square across the end of the blade; the skew chisel is ground at an angle (about 18°).
