The Sorby 289-3-3/8 Timber Framers' Slick is a massive 3-3/8" wide chisel designed for cleaning up uneven surfaces on very large projects, particularly timber frames and in boat building. Made to be pushed rather than struck, their qualities of weight and balance help produce a very fine but accurate cut, and the handles are off-set from the blades to give extra clearance - whether working on deep mortises or taking long paring cuts The blades are produced from high carbon alloy steel for the perfect balance of hardness, toughness, and razor edge holding ability.
The working face is machine ground in order to produce a slightly hollow surface for ease of honing while the back face is rounded off along its length to eliminate sharp corners and increase user comfort and safety. The contoured ash handle is attached to the blade with the combination of a heavy duty tang and an innovative socket for exceptional strength. Each slick has an overall length of 27-28". England
