Set of Bevel Edge Socket Chisels

Includes 1/4",3/8",1/2", 5/8" and 3/4" Bevel Edge Socket Chisels and Tool Roll

Lie-Nielsen Chisels are based on the Stanley 750 Bevel Edge Socket Chisels. Socket chisels are not common these days, perhaps because they are expensive to make, but Stanley and others once produced these chisels in a vast array. Socket chisel handles are less likely to break than tang chisels, and can be replaced easily. Our chisels are particularly comfortable in the hand and have excellent balance.

  • A-2 Tool Steel, hardened to Rockwell 60-62, cryogenically treated and double tempered.
  • Beveled at 30 Degrees
  • 9" Long
  • Hornbeam Handles

Our A2 Steel chisels will hold an edge extremely well, especially when sharpened at an angle of 30 Degrees or higher.

Use
  • Edges are square, parallel along the length, and very narrow so you can get into tight places. The backs are ground flat and finished by hand at 400 grit. The bevel is flat ground at 30°, but a higher secondary bevel (about 35°) is advisable, depending on the wood and how the chisel is being used. Additional honing is recommended.

    Handles

    Lie-Nielsen Chisels have Maine-harvested Hornbeam handles. Hornbeam, also known as Ironwood, was once prized for its toughness, but usually winds up as firewood these days. This under-utilized species makes superb chisel handles. We don’t recommend using a 16-ounce framing hammer with these chisels, though that is how we test them.

    Re-Seating Handles:

    When your Chisels arrive, the handles may be loose because of wood shrinkage. They may also loosen during dry weather. The handles are held in place by the wedging of the wood into the tapered socket. Just rap the chisel handle upside down to re-seat the handle. Although I’ve had chisel sets in my shop for years without the handles coming loose, some people have the opposite experience. One solution to a loose handle is to apply hair spray to the tapered section and re-seat as described. Strange as it may sound, it’s effective - and unlike glue, it’s reversible.

    Removing Handles:

    One of the advantages of the socket design is that if you want to change handles, you can simply tap the side of the handle on a board and pop the handle off.
