Manufactured from the finest Sheffield steel, with enduring attention to detail, each blade of Sorby's Sheaf River chisel series 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 bench 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 5-5/8" long blades (including bolster) and 4-3/4" handles, for an overall length of approximately 10-3/8". England
