Lie-Nielsen Chisels

Lie-Nielsen Chisels are based on the Stanley 750 Bevel Edge Socket Chisels.

Socket chisels are not common these days, perhaps because they are expensive to make. At 9" long, these chisels are particularly comfortable in the hand and have excellent balance. These chisels are consistently rated with the Blue Spruce Toolworks chisel range as the best western chisels available.

There is always heavy demand for these chisels so please enquire as to stock levels. We have a rolling stock order so Classic Hand Tools try to have these chisels in stock at all time. If you are looking for a Christmas present then please enquire 3/4 months in advance!

Spare handles are available at the botom of this page along with a video demonstration on chisel sharpening techniques from Deneb Puchalski.

Lie-Nielsen A2 Bevel Edge Chisels
Ref: LN-C-B

A2 chisels - these will hold their edge longer than high carbon chisels and therefore require less frequent sharpening.

The chisel edges are square, parallel along the length, and very narrow so you can get into tight places. The backs are ground flat and finished by hand at 400 grit. The bevel is flat ground at 30°, but a higher secondary bevel (about 35°) is advisable, depending on the wood and how the chisel is being used. Additional honing is recommended.

Lie-Nielsen Chisels have Maine-harvested Hornbeam handles.

There are now 10 sizes, 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 7/16", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4" & 1" and these are all available individually.

The ever popular basic set of 5 chisels comprises - 1/4" (6mm), 3/8" (9.5mm), 1/2" (13mm), 3/4" (19mm) and 1" (25mm) and can be supplied with a premium quality Lie Nielsen leather tool roll. Unfortunately the tool rolls are currently unavailable but the chisels are all still available individually.
