The best part is that when you prepare the chisel back, the entire tool disassembles to the blade so that you never accidentally ramp on the socket and take the edge out of flat. The steel is fantastic causing the edge retention to be great. You can quickly hone the blade or polish it like a mirror, if you're so inclined to do that with your tools. Most importantly, the balance is properly struck between fit and function. Ergonomically, this is a very comfortable chisel to use. The handle contours with the hand naturally while the weight of the tool is heavy enough to know it's in your hand, but light enough that it feels like a natural extension of your hand. I've compared many chisels and this is my favorite by far.\"        - Dan H, November 2017\n\u003cp\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \"....The beveled edges terminate with a minimal flat on the chisel edges. The blades are not lapped at the factory, but they are ground so well that I polished the backs in about 10 minutes.  I used the chisels in both configurations when building dovetailed drawers and they performed very well. The chisels are light, with a solid feel and great balance. The handle is comfortable. Over all, IBC’s bench chisels are excellent.\"\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e             Chris Gochnour,\u003cspan\u003e contributing editor to Fine Woodworking magazine\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e \"....\u003cspan\u003eI decided to do a little end grain chopping test, examining the state of the edges under a 40x microscope. Three chisels (L-N, IBC \u0026amp; Veritas PM-V11) were prepared identically, ground at 25 degrees, wire edge produced at 28 degrees, and polished at 30 degrees. I set up a simple jig so that each cut would be 1.2mm thick. I was cutting American cherry which was 15mm thick. Each chisel was tapped 100 times, and the total thickness chopped through was 150mm.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003eAll the chisels showed some wear, but the edges were essentially very similar.

IBC Bench Chisels

Product Description

Determined to design a better 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 chisel: comfortable, good steel, properly shaped, easy to set up, and the ability to change handles.

  • The quality, craftsmanship, and metallurgy on these "made in Canada" chisels are second to none (see product details tab for specifics).

  •  The steel holds an edge beautifully

  • The back only takes  a little work on a fine grit stone to produce a perfectly mirrored, flat surface.

  • Each chisel is perfectly balanced, fits comfortable in your hand, and feels great.

  • 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.

  • A quick twist using the provided plastic blade sheath seats the chisel together by compression.

  • When the handle is detached, the blade can be separated from the ferrule to lay perfectly flat on a surface for flattening or sharpening.

  • You can replace the standard maple or walnut handle with your own custom turned wood handle. 

  • Size:  Bench Chisel Handle total length: 3.87” Bench Chisel total length: 9.2”. Bench chisel blade length including the tang is 6“.
  • Blade: Made from AISI High Vanadium A2 tool steel fully stress relieved, triple tempered, cryogenically treated and hardened to 60-62 HRC. Back sides have a semi-mirror finish. Beveled sides are ground with a small 90° flat for comfort and safety during use. Cutting edges are ground with a primary bevel @ 30° for the lower sizes up to 3/8” and @ 25° for the larger sizes up to 1”. All cutting edges are ground square to the two side flats, with a 2° higher micro bevel and ship sharp enough from our factory to cut the hair on your arm. 
  • Ferrule: Made from a solid round stress and fatigue resistant steel bar hardened to 54-56 HRC with a double temper for added strength. Center bored, reamed, and flat on the top and bottom to slip over the tang and seat flush and firm against the flats on the blades two shoulders at one end and the flat top of the wood at the other. This ferrule design and solid construction protects the blade tang, bolsters the wood and provides the chisel with tremendous strength to withstand the lateral stresses from prying. Hand polished.
  • Handle Hardened Steel Core: Made from a 3.00” long x 3/8” round stress and fatigue resistant steel bar and hardened to 54-56 HRC with a double temper for strength and durability. Its finely tapped ends attach to the threaded blade tang and striking cap precisely and securely to make these chisels extremely rigid. It is also hollowed and milled open in its mid section for balance and weight. At less than 20 grams, it still has more than enough tensile strength to easily seal the chisel together indefinitely or, repeatedly.
  • Handle Striking Cap: Made from a solid round aluminum bar, it has a precision turned domed top and a finely threaded center post that is precisely and securely attached to the hardened steel core. Its wide flat back seats flush and firm against the matching flat on the back of the wood for a wide area of contact. Tightening the handle compresses the back cap against the wood, fixing both firmly in place. Hand polished on domed surface. Weight: 10 grams.
  •  Handle Wood: IBC Chisel handles are currently available with Maple or Walnut wood. Each wood is 3 1/2” long, center bored to fit its steel core and cut flat on top and bottom for a wide area of contact with the hardened ferrule the aluminum back cap. Tightening the chisel compresses the wood between them to seal it in place. When the handle is detached, the wood can be separated from the steel core and back cap to customize the handle with your own wood species and / or profile.

What is your return policy?  We stand behind each and every one of our products, and therefore guarantee satisfaction.  If there is a defect in one of the products you received, just contact us to explain the problem, we will then pay for the return shipping and ship you out a replacement immediately. 

This is our owner and founder - Rob.  He is the shop master, our woodworking guru, the source of all woodworking knowledge, without him we are nothing! (He also signs our paychecks so we have to say that!).

 

This is Jake, son of Rob.  He is the CEO of the Rob Cosman Global Logistics Center and he also shoots all the videos. If your package did not arrive on time its Jake's fault, not ours!  If the Rob Cosman video you are watching shakes too much its Jake's fault, not ours!  Basically if its bad its Jake's fault, not ours!

 

This is Dave, friend of Rob.  Dave is head of shop production, the shop DJ, and the shop's union steward. He keeps production on union schedule, maintains the shop equipment, and always has tunes on his phone.  Just don't park your car behind his truck!

   

This is Frick, son-in-law of Rob. He is our techie.  He edits all the videos and pictures and is the administrator of the online workshop website.  We have to tolerate him because he makes the grandkids.

  

This is COL Luther - affectionately know as Luthie, friend of Rob.  He helps run Rob's Purple Heart Project and helps with the website.  He will do just about anything we ask as long as we feed him boiled peanuts and grits.
