Blue Spruce Toolworks


Blue Spruce Toolworks precision hand tools are designed for the woodworking craftsman who desires tools as finely crafted as the furniture he makes. They are designed and produced by a woodworker and have a balance and feel that can only come with years of experience and attention to detail. Made in Oregon, USA and sold in the UK & Europe exclusively through Classic Hand Tools.

Dovetail chisels (including new larger sizes), Detail Skew Chisels, New Fishtail Chisels, New Long handled Paring Chisels. These are chisels that you will want to cherish and pass on to future generations. The tools are attractively boxed with a choice of beautiful handles: Cocobolo, African Blackwood, or Curly (figured) Maple (top tip - if choosing several different types of chisel it maybe a good idea to mix chisel handles as this makes it quicker to identify if they sit in a tool roll).

Blue Spruce Butt Chisels
Ref: BST BT


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.

PLEASE NOTE: The Blue Spruce Toolworks chisel sets are made to order and may have a lead time of 3 to 4 weeks.

Set of 5: 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1"
Set of 9: 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 1", 1¼", 1½"

Blue Spruce Dovetail Chisels
Ref: DTSET


These have been a fantastic addition to the range of chisels we offer at Classic Hand Tools since we introduced them into Europe in 2007.

The thin blade allows the chisels to get into tight areas e.g between tails in the area receiving small pins in dovetail joinery, or to clean up the sides of small or thin mortises.

The blades are A-2 tool steel, hardened and tempered to 60 Rc. They are precision ground, honed, and come ready to use.

The handles are finely turned with an attractive detail bead to add interest and a visual separation between the wood handle and brass ferrule. The handle is uniquely sized and has a more bulbous shape than most chisel handles for a wonderful feel and balance

Blue Spruce Skew Chisels
Ref: SK


Blue Spruce Toolworks have made a pair of 10mm (3/8") skew chisels to compliment the dovetail chisels. They are 3/8 inch wide to fit into tight spaces, and 4-3/8" long. The sides are concave, similar to the dovetail chisels, to allow maximum visibility of your work and to allow paring into acute angles. The blades are made from the same A-2 tool steel as the dovetail chisels and hardened to 60 Rc for superior edge retention and sharpness. These chisels are ideally suited to cleaning out the socket bottoms of half-blind dovetails. They will be a great addition to your collection of fine woodworking chisels. Attractively boxed.

Blue Spruce Fishtail Chisels - Curly Maple
Ref: FT


These chisels have many uses but are specifically designed to clean out the sockets of half-blind dovetails. The thin blades taper back from the edge at an 8:1 ratio to allow side clearance and easy access into the sockets. This is an excellent ratio for dovetails in most woods but especially hardwoods.

The edges are also machined concave to nearly a knife edge for maximum visibility and shaving clearance. The maximum length of socket is about 7/8 inches, which covers the majority of casework dovetail applications. For longer lengths of sockets you will want to use your Blue Spruce Toolworks skew chisels.

The 4.25" long A2 blade is hardened and tempered to 60 Rc and ground and honed at a 30 degree angle. Like all Blue Spruce Toolworks' chisels, it is beautifully machined and well balanced and sure to become a favourite. The chisel is available with cocobolo, African blackwood or curly (figured) maple handles.

Picture shows the Cocobolo handles which are no longer available.

Unfortunately the 3/8" fishtail is not currently available. Please call us on 01473 784 983 or email sales@classichandtools.com to be added to our waiting list.
