First introduced in 1930, the Stanley 750 cabinetmaker chisels remained in production for nearly 40 years. Sold under the Sweetheart brand, they were renowned for their ergonomic design and robust construction, making them comfortable and maneuverable yet capable of withstanding the demands of chopping.
Recently reintroduced, the chisels are now made in Sheffield, England, with the same classic design and compact socket-mounted handle as the US-made originals. Rarely seen nowadays, socketed handles are remarkably durable since repeated mallet blows serve only to tighten the socket-and-tenon assembly.
The tough hornbeam handles are shaped to fit the hand; the cove naturally fits your thumb and index finger, while the domed end nestles in your palm when paring. The taper-ground blades are chrome-vanadium steel hardened to Rc57-62, and have bevelled edges for clearance in tight corners.
Overall lengths range from 8 1/2" to 10". Built to withstand hard use, yet well balanced for fine work.
Offered individually or as a set of four (1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1") or as a set of eight (all sizes). Sets come in a leather tool roll.
