Blue Spruce Toolworks Butt Chisels are some of the finest quality chisels available today. They are specifically designed for heavy duty use and are great "go-to" chisels for many tasks. Made with both a strong socket and a deep tang construction, they are stronger than most traditional bench chisels and are nicely balanced.
The handles are hard, figured maple that has been infused with acrylic to fill every cell. This makes an extremely dense and tough handle that can take pounding from a mallet. The overall length of the chisels is about 5 inches.
The finely machined blades are only 2-1/2 inches (63.5 mm)long and 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) thick at the bolster and taper down to the bevel. The side bevels terminate with a very small side edge land which allows use right into the sharpest dovetail corners. The blades are made from A2 tool steel. It is hardened and tempered in a computer controlled vacuum furnace to a hardness of Rc60. The cutting edge is ground and honed at a 30 degree angle.
