Bevel edge chisels are perhaps the most popular type of woodworking chisel. They're a favourite of the cabinet maker but ought to find a home in everyone's toolkit.
Blade, with superior grind
Forged and made of fine-grained, chrome manganese steel and tempered to 59 HRC, for strength and a long-lasting edge.
It is then finely ground and finished with a 25° bevel. The superior grind allows greater access into tighter spots, such as the corners of dovetails.
All Axminster Rider chisels only require a final honing once received to achieve a fine, long-lasting edge. We would suggest the addition of a 30° micro-bevel, making sharpening much quicker.
Soft grip handle
We understand that wooden handles aren't for everyone; especially if you're working on site, where they can be subjected to some less than favourable conditions. With this in mind, we've produced a range of Bevel Edge chisels with a two part soft-grip handle; an oval designed with softer ribbed inserts, giving you a secure, comfortable grip.
This set of 5 chisels comprises 6mm, 12mm, 20mm, 25mm and 32mm widths. The blades of these chisels are fine-grained, chrome manganese steel, hardened and tempered to 59 HRC. Ground with a 25° bevel, the blades require only a final honing to achieve a fine, long lasting edge (we suggest a 30° micro-bevel).
Each chisel features a tough polypropylene handle with TPE softer inserts. The handles are oval and the softer inserts ribbed. These features ensure a comfortable yet secure grip giving you complete control. A metal striking cap allows you to use a steel hammer for heavier cuts. The overall chisel length is between 245mm and 275mm depending on the width. These are high quality European made chisels.
