Description
These chisels are precision made by Veritas in their own machine shop. Turned and milled from solid bar stock, the blades are O1 tool steel* (Rc58-60), chosen for its ease of sharpening and its excellent edge-retention properties at low bevel angles. The blade is tapered from shoulder to tip for strength and rigidity, with parallel sides and true bevel edges for full clearance and minimal friction when working into an angled corner or a tight recess. To ensure the face of the blade is both smooth and true, the chisels are lapped flat. The blade-to-handle connection is made with a tang and a socket-like ferrule. The tang has flats to prevent the handle from rotating. Turned from a solid blank, the ferrule seats directly onto the shoulder of the blade. Repeated mallet blows will only tighten the joint through use. Each chisel is superbly balanced, with the centre of gravity at or below the tang/socket connection. The handle is hard maple that has been kiln-baked at a high temperature to eliminate nearly all mo
