Narex Butt Chisels
Available individually in 4 different sizes. 6mm, 12mm, 20mm, and 26mm. Please select your size option from the drop-down menu.
Produced in the Czech Republic, these butt 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.
Butt chisels were originally named for their use in installing butt hinges but have now found wider acceptance with woodworkers as an easy to control, shorter chisel that fits more comfortably in smaller hands. They are primarily used for cutting and paring tasks. They still have the classic design bevel edge with a narrow land on each side, providing excellent clearance when chiselling into tight recesses.
The unfinished hornbeam wood handles are comfortable in use and have a flat spot on the back so they don't roll around on the bench. With a brass ferrule holding the tang into the handle, each chisel measures approximately 170mm long.
