Kirschen Joiner’s Mortice Chisels Chisel away waste wood and cut mortice joints Used for chopping out joints by chiselling away the waste wood. Heavy duty mortice chisels are particularly useful for cutting mortice joints as they are strong enough to withstand heavy blows with a mallet. The handle is reinforced with a steel ferrule and top ring which prevents the handle from splitting at the bottom when it is hit repeatedly. A leather washer is fitted between the stout rectangular section blade and the handle. Available in a variety of sizes.

Designed for wood cutting and carving, palm carving chisels feature pear shaped handles for comfortable and accurate carving.

Manufactured to the same exacting standards as the fullsize tools, Kirschen micro chisels have been designed for miniaturists dedicated to their craft. The traditional Sheffield list, on which most manufacturers base their production, lists 1/16” or 2mm as the narrowest tools available, however Kirschen have solved this problem. With a range of tools covering 8 designs in sizes from 0.5 to 2mm, all are fitted with 100mm(4”) long octagonal hornbeam handles, with a recessed circular grip near the ferrule. The blades are fully polished, lacquered and of the same high quality steel as used on their full sized tools. For convenience, they require only a light hone before use.

S-Form Paring Chisel Due to the increased manoeuvrability, it’s now easier to remove light shavings of wood with little effort. The S-form paring chisel is a slightly different take on the cranked paring chisel. Kirschen have used one of their famous bevel edge chisels and forged the blade into a gentle double curve which raises the handle by about 40mm above the work. The nature of the tool is to remove light shavings of wood, usually with a finished surface as the intended result, sides of dovetails, tenon shoulders, etc. Featuring hornbeam handles and a fully polished blade. 275mm overall length.
