Ashley Iles Chisels

Ashley Iles Chisels

In the autumn of 1949, a pattern maker named Ashley Iles gave up his day job and set out on his own to make and sell tools.

He began by renting a small workshop in Sheffield for five shillings a week and ended up with a factory making carving and woodturning tools with a brand renowned worldwide for the finest quality handmade English woodworking tools.

Forged and ground by hand in the old tradition.
