A few months ago I finished this set of paring chisels. They are completely hand made by myself, except for the hardening. Overall length is 320mm (12.5”) and the length of the steel part is 180mm (7”). The steel is O1, hand grind to the rigth shape, heat treated by a professional heat treatment company and sharpened at a 25 degree angle. The woods are iron wood, padauk, chery and lacewood.

I’m a hobby toolmaker, located in the Netherlands making woodworking tools like chisels, drawknives, marking knives and regular knives. I like also to make custom made tools. These chisels were made to order but I had the opportunity to make a picture of them all togeher before they were shipped.

This particular set has been sold already but I still wanted to share it with you.

I love it very nice job. I always put paring chisels on my wishlist. Seems like they don’t sell these anymore. Yours look great.
