Veritas Bench Chisels
Ref: V05S20


Turned and milled from O1 tool steel (Rc58-60), chosen for its ease of sharpening and good edge retention at low bevel angles. Each chisel has superb balance, with the centre of gravity at or below the tang/socket connection. The blades taper from shoulder to tip for strength and rigidity. Parallel sides and true bevel edges give full clearance when working into a corner. Lapping to a flatness of ±0.0127mm (0.0005") or better over the entire surface ensures the face of the blade is smooth and true. The blade-to-handle connection is similar to the Japanese, with a tang and a socket-like ferrule. The tang has flats to prevent the handle from rotating. Repeated mallet blows will only tighten the joint. Kiln baking the hard maple handle at a high temperature eliminates nearly all the moisture content and caramelises the natural sugars in the wood. This imparts a rich, dark colour, while helping to seal it against humidity changes. The handle has shallow flats parallel to the blade back.

The chisels are available in 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" and 1" widths, with blades ranging from 117mm to 130mm long. The 1/4" and 3/8" chisels have 30° primary bevel angles; the others are ground at 25°. All have 2° micro-bevels and require only final honing before use.

Veritas Set of 3 Miniature Chisels
Ref: 05P85.01


This chisel set is the latest addition to the Veritas line of fully functional miniature tools. Made at about 1/3 the scale of our regular bench chisels, each is only about 3-1/4" long overall and weighs less than a third of an ounce. At this scale, the three tools in the set have 3/8", 1/4" and 1/8" wide blades. All permit a delicate touch where fine, controlled cuts are needed.

Their 3/32" thick PM-V11® steel blades are hardened to Rc61-63 and ground flat on the face. They have a 25° bevel. The chisel handles are bubinga with a stainless-steel ferrule.
