Determined to design a better bench chisel, IBC and I teamed up and developed what I consider to be the best woodworking bench chisel on the market today.  These chisels meet all five criteria of a great bench chisel: comfortable, high quality steel, bevel on the side with a small flat, flat back, and the ability to change handles.

Product Details:

  • Size:  Bench chisel handle length: approximately 3.9 inches. Bench chisel total length: approximately 9 inches. Bench chisel blade length, including the tang is approximately 6 inches. Blade width: 1/2 inch. 
  • Handle: Cherry handle is turned precisely on a lathe so it fits nicely to the ferrule and the end cap and have a butter smooth surface.  Shaped for a comfortable grip in the hand, they are finished with three coats of oil.

  • Steel:  Made from AISI High Vanadium A2 tool which holds an edge beautifuy.  Fully stress relieved, triple tempered, cryogenically treated and hardened to 60-62 HRC.  Primary bevel is ground to 25°. 

  • Flat Back.  Each chisel is tested on a granite reference surface to ensure the back is flat to within .0005 of an inch.

  • Design: The blade tang extends through a hardened steel ferrule and into a threaded hardened steel core that is inserted through the center of the wood handle and is securely attached to an aluminum striking cap.  This design allows you to easily replace the standard cherry handle with your own custom turned wood handle. 

  • Made in Canada

Excellent quality!

Solid tool! The construction is superior in that it’s threaded instead of most other models where the handle “pops off.” This will not come apart unless I make it come apart. Came sharpened and prepped. Nice smooth cherry handle feels great with great balance. Rob wasn’t lying. I’ll be buying the entire set eventually!
