Custom, Handmade Chisels 

- Hand Forged Timberframing Chisels

- Custom Made Chisel Scabbards

We recover high carbon steel from lumber mills in central British Columbia, the Cariboo. Hand made, handforged, hardened and differentially tempered socket fit timberframing chisels, full tang framing chisels, custom heavy duty bench and log building chisels. We make them tough,  balanced and hold a strong edge.

The  heat treatment we practice creates chisel blades with tensile strength, tough enough to pry with and with a razor edge that holds. We guarantee all our work.

Heavy Duty chisel you can strike with a hammer. Great for log home builders. The chisel blades are full tang with a 5/16th inch thick piece of spring steel welded onto the end of the tang as a striking surface.
We'll wrap a bit of leather on the handle for grip if you want.
The hardwood scales are fit into the ferrule and pinned to the tang with threaded stainless steel pins. Each chisel can come with a scabbard for carry or a set in a roll. The handmade leather tip guards are incuded in the price.

The scabbards are handmade. Saddle stiched by hand with saddle rivets for reinforcement. They have 2 1/2 inch belt loops and leg ties for security.


These are the toughest chisels you can get.  . .                          Contact us.

We cut a piece of head saw steel for the 10" long blade at the required width, 1, 1 1/2, 2 1/2 or 3 inches. Forge the edge on. We forge a socket, 1 3/8 - 1 1/2" tapered down to 3/4", minimum of 4" long, you can request a longer socket. We fit the blade into the socket, weld and forge, finish harden and differentially temper. The edge is strong and hard. The blade and socket are tough. Inside the socket there is  3/4" of blade tang. The handle is turned to seat into the 1 3/8 - 1 1/4 socket opening down tight fitting over the 3/4" of blade tang . The handle socket wood has a 3/4" V cut which fits over the tang inside the socket.
We cut pieces of drive shaft socket 3/8 - 1/4" wide, heat and drive the rings onto the handles. Tight fitting hoops.
Head saw blade 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. Another steel would be spring steel that we recover. After we're finished you can cut through the toughest knot without a mark on the edge. We have over 20 years of experience with these steels building knives and tools.
