At Timbecon, we only stock the finest tools available. So naturally, we couldn't go past stocking a range of the finest hand-forged chisels and turning tools in the world, each piece individually crafted using the time-honoured traditions of Sheffield blacksmiths and metalworkers.
As a family owned and operated company, Crown Hand Tools and their loyal staff have been proudly manufacturing traditional woodworking hand tools for over fifty years. Handmade to the finest quality, Crown has found the perfect equilibrium between tradition and innovation, making the tools beautiful as well as functional.
The Master Craftsmen who have been working at Crown for decades still hand forge, temper and grind the tools as their ancestors did, whilst also incorporating modern processes and materials, such as Cryogenics and Powder Metallurgy. This combination of old and new manufacturing techniques ensures Crown are giving customers what they consider the best quality hand tools available.
All the tools start with high-quality raw materials and are manufactured exclusively in the UK with the vast majority of the work being done within the town limits of Sheffield - a place that was once synonymous with the highest quality tools you could find in the world.
All the tools are still made to traditional quality standards and in many cases, still made using the traditional methods. That’s why many of our customers choose Crown because unlike a lot of modern brands, you really are buying a tool that you’ll be using and probably passing on to future generations.
