SLICKS, FRAMING, BENCH & CORNER CHISELS

Barr Quarton has been working with tool steel since 1977 and as a professional knife maker has had the opportunity to work with some of the best bladesmiths and blacksmiths in the country.

He gained additional experience after receiving an Idaho Arts Council grant in 1985 which allowed him to apprentice with a traditional Japanese swordsmith.

Barr has taken his knowledge and skill and applied them to the making of fine woodworking hand tools.

Hand Forged Vs. Machine Made

There is no comparison. In a day and age where most tools are drop forged, stamped or cut out and then poorly tempered, a majority of people have never had the pleasure of using a well-made tool.

Hand forging with hammers compresses the steel, introducing more carbon into a smaller area. Carbon is what cuts, therefore you get a superior edge. After annealing, the tools are quenched then tempered to the proper hardness. The tool is then fitted with a hardwood handle that seats properly in the socket. The shock ring on top helps prevent splitting.

My tools all come shaving sharp and may be shipped back to me for re-sharpening and repair work at any time for a nominal fee. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with these tools, simply return within one year for a full refund or exchange.

Please remember our tools are hand forged, sizes are approximate and may vary slightly.

Classic Hand Tools have wanted to sell these tools in Europe for many years and now finally they have arrived with us.

The prices shown include VAT and shipping to most parts of mainland UK.

These things are heavy so it has cost small fortune to ship them over from the States so yes the UK price is high as the pound is a pretty weak currency at the moment - if that changes in our favour then we will adjust our price but don't keep your hopes up too high.
Yes, we ship into Europe - ask for a quote to ship this and other items to you.

Where stated you can protect your investment with high-quality, hand-crafted, leather guard. This saddle grade leather is stitched and riveted. Chisel guards come with ABS plastic backing inserts. The holsters enable you to carry your chisel on your tool belt. Hand-made with the same high-quality construction and materials as the leather guards. The holsters are for the framing and bench chisels.
