Determined to design a better bench chisel, IBC and I teamed up and developed what I consider to be the best woodworking bench chisel on the market today.  These chisels meet all five criteria of a great bench chisel: comfortable, high quality steel, bevel on the side with a small flat, flat back, and the ability to change handles.

Working with our machinist we developed a grinding jig that precisely grinds out the 1/8 size while maintaining the relief angle and the all important flat area on the edge (guaranteed to be within 0.005” of 1/8 inch).

These chisels take a lot of time and effort to produce, so if we are out of stock just keep checking back for when we get our next batch.

Product Details:

  • Size:  Bench chisel handle length: approximately 3.9 inches. Bench chisel total length: approximately 9 inches. Bench chisel blade length, including the tang is approximately 6 inches. Blade width: 1 inch. 
  • Handle: Cherry handle is turned precisely on a lathe so it fits nicely to the ferrule and the end cap and have a butter smooth surface.  Shaped for a comfortable grip in the hand, they are finished with three coats of oil.

  • Steel:  Made from AISI High Vanadium A2 tool which holds an edge beautifuy.  Fully stress relieved, triple tempered, cryogenically treated and hardened to 60-62 HRC.  Primary bevel is ground to 25°. 

  • Flat Back.  Each chisel is tested on a granite reference surface to ensure the back is flat to within .0005 of an inch.

  • Design: The blade tang extends through a hardened steel ferrule and into a threaded hardened steel core that is inserted through the center of the wood handle and is securely attached to an aluminum striking cap.  This design allows you to easily replace the standard cherry handle with your own custom turned wood handle. 

  • Made in Canada

    Chisels

    Very pleased with the chisels that I have recently acquired. Rob is right on when he says chiseling is one of the weakest aspects of a new hand tool woodworker (I am the proof). The better tool makes the work easier (perfect size and comfortable handle).
