One of the finest special chisel collections made in the world are brought to you by Robert Sorby... These are designed for the demanding craftsman, cabinet maker, furniture restorer and house builder. Many of these tools in this collection are exclusive to Robert Sorby - corner chisels and longer paring chisel. The face of each chisel has an indentation point. This is your guarantee of quality as it is the mark left by their diamond hardness tester. Each of these tools goes through this important process.
Forged from special Sheffield alloy steel, the combination of special steel and careful heat treatment gives a unique combination of edge retention and overall toughness which are the hallmarks of each Robert Sorby chisel. They are precision ground for extra accuracy and have their blades honed and lapped ready for use. The chisels have a robust or refined handle depending on specific application and are manufactured to British Standard BS1943 for woodworking chisels.
Their traditional, fine, slim shape coupled with precision grinding gives long thin bevels which avoid under-cutting.
