Product Highlights:
Blades turned and milled from solid O1 tool steel bar stock (Rc58-60); lapped to flatness tolerance of ±0.0005" or better
Tapered from shoulder to tip for strength and rigidity
Center of gravity is at or below tang/socket connection; tang has flats to prevent handle from rotating
Ferrule turned from a solid blank, seats directly onto blade shoulder
Maple handle kiln-baked at high temperature to eliminate nearly all moisture content and to caramelize natural sugars in wood (helps seal it)
Handle is contoured to fit hand, with shallow flats parallel to blade back to provide tactile cues for finger placement
End is domed to resist chipping from glancing mallet blows
Available in 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" widths, blades ranging from 4-5/8" to 5-1/8" long
1/4" and 3/8" chisels have 30° primary bevel angles, others are ground at 25°
All have 2° micro-bevels, require only final honing before use
Made in Canada
