We recover quality high carbon steel from lumber mills in central British Columbia. Hand made, hand forged, hardened and differentially tempered timberframing chisels and custom heavy duty bench and building chisels. We make them strong, balanced and hold a great edge. Headsaw steel is high carbon steel with a molybdenum, chromium and nickel content. After we handforge, harden and temper we go back into the blade, differentially tempering the tang and blending the tempers in the chisel blades.
This creates a chisel blade with tensile strength, tough enough to pry with and a razor edge that holds. We guarantee that all our chisels will hold an exceptional edge and are tough and strong at the same time.
Handmade Timber Framing Chisels
A slice of drive shaft persuaded on hot creates the hoop.
Handmade, hand forged, hardened and differentially tempered. The tangs are full and run right to the top of the handle. A 5/16 inch thick piece of high carbon striking steel is welded on top. The full tang, socket and blade are one piece. Made for log home builders, timberframers, woodworkers and wood carvers. Tough chisels made for prying, hammering and keeping a great edge. We can build them 14 to eighteen inches overall in length. The chisels come with handmade tool belt scabbards with leg ties.
