I looked hard to find a high quality, but medium priced bench chisels and I finally found them in the WoodRiver® Bevel Edge Socket Chisels.   Inspired by the classic socket chisels of the past, but improved upon by using modern metals and by making some design tweaks.  The result is a chisel optimized for detailed woodworking.

I am very impressed with the flatness of the backs of these chisels which means they only take a minimal amount of preparation work “out of the box.” The transition from the “flat” of the back to the socket is designed with a gradual slope, preventing the back of the chisel from abruptly lifting on longer paring operations. The side bevels sweep back towards the centerline, allowing the chisel access to tight corners, which is especially important for dovetail work. The resulting flat area or “land” is a consistent 0.7mm – narrow enough for tight access but wide enough to prevent an uncomfortable sharp edge.

The complete tool is designed with balance in mind to increase comfort and effectiveness.  This is a chisel that will give you years and years of service and will become a favorite in your shop.

  • Individual chisels available in widths from 1/8 inch to 1-1/4 inch.

  • Forged from 100 CR-V steel for its edge holding property.

  • Factory-ground 25° bevel.

  • Tempered in a salt bath to HRC58-63.

  • Well fitting bubinga handles.

  • Each chisel ships with WoodRiver Silicon Chisel Guards.

    1/8 bench chisel

    Sorry to say, but, haven’t used it yet. Just building my kit..... I’m sure it meets the high standards that I’m accustomed to from you.
