Produced in the Czech Republic, these paring 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.
Though often overlooked, cranked-neck chisels are a valuable addition to your range of tools. They are able to work in areas a regular chisel can't as well as make it easy for cleaning out trenches. The blades are short (95 - 102mm) for maneuverability, and the offset handles provide clearance when fitting housed joints or working into restricted recesses. The offset design also lets you register the blade face on the work when flush-trimming projections for better control and reduced risk of digging in.
The unfinished hornbeam handles are fitted with brass-plated ferrules and measure about 260 - 305mm long overall.
