Produced in the Czech Republic, these mortice 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.
The traditional mortice chisel design has relieved edges and taper from tip to shoulder for sidewall clearance with a significantly thicker cross-sectional shape to be able to chisel and lever out large quantities of material in deep recesses whilst still maintaining its shape.
The stained, waxed beech handles are an ergonomic oval shape that sits comfortably in the hand and resists rolling around on a bench. Reinforced with steel hoops and ferrules for strength the blade length is approximately 145-150mm with the overall length generally around 300mm 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.
