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.

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: 1/2 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

IBC Bench Chisel

Have not used the tool yet. Will sharpen the whole set, once I get them. Wanted to purchase the whole set, but due to 1/4 3/8 and 5/8 out of stock, it wouldn't let me order the set. So, I am purchasing them individually. So far I have the 1/2 and 3/4. Just paid for, and awaiting shipment on 1" 3/8 and 5/8 which just became available. 1/4 still not available. Paying a whole lot more ordering one at a time. This set back my plan to purchase all of the sharpening tools I need. That will be my next order if I can come up with the money.

1/2” IBC Bench Chisel Review

I like it because it came sharp, the back-side was nice and straight, and it was ready for action. My next purchase will an 1/8” IBC chisel. It is the best chisel I’ve owned.

Great bench chisel

This was a long overdue replacement for one of the six chisels from my original Craftsman starter set purchased back in 1990. The Walnut handle feels great in the palm and I'm able to swap it with a handle of my own making should I desire to do so. I'm anxious to replace the other five chisels with IBCs~!

IBC Chisel

I love these chisels. They are easy to get the back flat and hold an edge. They also feel light in the hand and can be controlled well.
