Much shorter than standard bench chisels, Butt Chisels are significantly less awkward to use. Their compact size will help you achieve a much higher level of control, making them especially good for paring, joint fitting, and other fine detail work.
Manufactured from the finest Sheffield steel, with enduring attention to detail, each blade is made from a drop stamped, high carbon blank incorporating a specially formulated alloy to ensure a perfect balance of steel strength and edge retention.
This exceptional material allows blades to be sharpened to 0.5 of micron - four times sharper than a disposable razor. Each chisel is also diamond hardness tested - guaranteeing not one single tool leaves the factory without inspection.
The rounded handle is matched to tapered bolster and ferrule for a clean, elegant look, and a very comfortable feel in use.
Named after the river Sheaf, Sheffield's endearing testimony to the steel industry, these butt chisels have been designed with environmental considerations at heart, while still maintaining the same legendary Robert Sorby quality.
The handles are made from certified sustainable American Ash, combining high tensile strength and resilience with long-term timber sustainability and availability. The packaging is sourced from 96% recycled material and is 100% recyclable.
Chisels have 4-5/16" long blades and 3-1/2" handles, for an overall length of approximately 7-13/16" . England
