Super premium bevel edge chisels
New Narex Ritcher Bevel Edge Chisels. Named after the Narex founder, Vaclav Richter, they have been launched to mark the company's centenary year. Some clever engineering and design offers great value at the premium end of the chisel market.
Right after initial hardening, cryogenic treatment cools the steel down to very low temperatures by using liquid nitrogen to as low as −190 °C. This completes transformation of austenite, which increases both the hardness and toughness of the steel.
This new steel offers less stone drag compared with the more familiar CrMn steel making it one of the nicest and easiest to sharpen. Edge taking is right up there with the very best! The standout advantage is by far the amazing edge retention. This stuff takes an absolute age to dull and when it does they are easily bought back to that razor-sharp edge in moments.
The ground surface is so fine that it is almost a polish. The edges are as fine as hand ground chisels which makes them most suitable for the finest precision work.
The chisels are fitted with a traditional handle made from ash that is light and strong. The handle has been finely crafted and finished and secured with a split proof ground steel ferrule. Every chisel is marked by the trademark RICHTER EXTRA.
