Produced in the Czech Republic, these firmer chisels are forged from highly alloyed chrome-manganese steel, and heat-treatment hardened to Rc59. The blades are accurately ground and fully sharpened so are virtually ready for use out of the box and meet the German DIN 5139 standard.
Traditional firmer chisels are special tools designed for rough carpentry work. The blade tapers in width and lengthwise from tip to shoulder for sidewall clearance and is great for removing large chunks of material.
The unfinished hornbeam wood handles are sit comfortably in the hand. A brass ferrule secures the tang to the handle with a blade length of approximately 135mm from tip to bolster and an overall length of around 280mm long.
A great range of chisels - they are well-priced, great quality and are perfect for beginners and/or school or workshops where sharing tools is common.
