These are well-made chisels at an excellent price. Though often overlooked as specialized tools, cranked-neck chisels are a valuable addition to any woodworker’s tool kit. Their ability to work in areas a regular chisel can’t makes them versatile problem solvers.
The blades are short (3-3/4″ to 4″) 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.
Made in the Czech Republic by Narex, they have accurately ground bevel-edged blades made of chrome-manganese steel hardened to Rc60-62. The unfinished hornbeam handles are fitted with brass-plated ferrules. Set of four includes 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″ and 1″ sizes; about 10″ to 12″ long overall. Tip guards included.
Save $30 on the set of four chisels until August 5, 2014. After this date, the regular set price will be $109. Offer subject to stock availability.
