Product Details

These skew chisels give a shearing action allowing the chisel to slice through the wood rather than tear it. This makes them ideal for precise paring and detailed finishing even in hard end grain and exotic and burred timber. Forged from the highest quality German chrome vanadium steel, the blades are hardened to Rc-61 along their entire length. As the whole blade is hardened and not just the tip, the last inch of the blade is capable of holding as sharp an edge as the first inch. Long tangs keep the blades anchored firmly in the handles and steel reinforcing bands keep the handles from spreading or splitting when struck with a mallet.

The handles are turned from European hornbeam valued for its straight grain and hardwearing nature. This pair of chisels comprises of a right skew chisel and a left skew chisel, both with 45 degree skews and overall lengths of 287mm. Made in Germany.

Made entirely in Germany from the highest quality materials, MHG chisels come from the centuries old traditions of fine tool making but are produced using the very latest forging and hardening processes. This gives a chisel that is extremely efficient and incredibly reliable. The blades are premium quality German chrome vanadium; a metal that has a much higher resistance to metal fatigue than other tool steels and is perfect for tools that are designed to be struck with a mallet. Each blade is tempered and hardened to RC-61 along its entire length, giving a blade that will take and hold a razor sharp edge as well at the end of its working life as it did when new.

The handles are made from slow growing European hardwoods selected for their straight grain and strength. Supported by a steel band, the handles will not spread or split in use and offer exceptional support to the deep seated tangs. Precision ground and sharpened before they leave the factory, MHG chisels are built for hard work and perform flawlessly.

Maris Arins

Just like 6 bevel edge chisel set, these are laquer covered, which ruins your diamond stone!
Backs are not flat at all and take lot of time to flatten

Tony Collins

These skew chisels arrived in quick time and were well and safely packaged. Both in good condition and seem to be of high quality. Have used them while making some small bonsai tables. They were great for paring and slicing through rounded corners. I have not stropped them yet as they were sharp and well edged on delivery. Glad I bought them.

Nic Murray

As usual excellent service from Rutlands ordered Monday and received Tuesday. The chisels are excellent. Sharp straight out of the box and razor sharp with a little honing. The handles are comfortable to hold and the chisels are nicely balanced in the hand. The chisel handles have top ferrules but I can't think of a reason for needing to use a mallet on the chisels. These chisels will sit very nicely in mt racks along side my other MHG chisels.

Issac James

Got these in your Winter Sale and very pleased. Great product and an excellent deal!

Ian

Very sharp from new but hone them a little - well my hands have the scars to show just how sharp you can get these chisels. OW.

Graham Kaye

Excellent skew chisels and an essential bit of kit when hand cutting dovetails.

Frank Rafferty

MHG chisels are exceptional quality and these skew chisels are no different. When fully honed they have a cutting edge as sharp as a razor and will simply slice though wood such as beech. What more coulld you possibly want from a set of skew chisels?
