The cranked neck design of these special paring chisels allows you to use the chisel with the blade absolutely flat on the surface at all times, a feature very useful, for example, when cleaning up the inside of carcasses after assembly or whenever large flat surfaces require paring. This beautiful Henry Taylor design remains very popular especially with discriminating cabinetmakers. These refined chisels feature long thin blades that taper ever so slightly towards the cutting edge and should never be used with a mallet. Precision and control, not power and force, should be the norm. Featuring Beech handles with brass ferrules, these chisels have blades that range between 7 1/4" and 9" in length. Overall lengths range between 12 1/2" and 14 3/4". Made from the finest Sheffield Steel. Crafted in England by Henry Taylor.
