Ashley Iles Dovetail Chisels Set of 6

The Ashley Iles Dovetail set consists of four superbly controllable, short bladed paring chisels with elliptical faces that form an acute angle along the sides of the blade; this design gives excellent clearance right into the corners of a joint. The chisels come in widths of 1/8", 1/4" and 3/8" as well as a nice broad 1" to give a crisp, level finish on larger areas.

For all those spots that you can't quite get to with a straight bladed chisel, Ashley Iles have also added a pair of cabinetmakers fishtail skews. The tapered blades afford much better access and the sharply skewed cutting edges will trim right into the corners for a nice clean finish.

Although designed primarily for use as paring chisels these tools are strong enough to withstand the occasional tap with a light mallet.

Like all Ashley Iles tools, the dovetail chisels are unconditionally guaranteed for the duration of the purchaser's life.

The set of 6 Ashley Iles Dovetail Chisels includes:

  • 1/8" (3mm)
  • 1/4" (6mm)
  • 3/8" (9mm)
  • 1" (25mm)
  • 1/4" (6mm) Fishtail Skew (right)
  • 1/4" (6mm) Fishtail Skew (left)


Shown with optional suede tool roll.

1st class as usual
These chisels are in a class of their own. Very delicate but not afraid of a tap with a light mallet.Lovely balance and a pleasure to use. Nicholas -S.Wales

I Likey!
For me these as much a heritage tool as LN.
I make guitars, and needed more delicate chisels, thin edged, rather than my Japanese set paring chisel collection.
Not only do they take a fabulous edge and hold it well, but also very importantly feel excellent in the hand.

Superb Chisels
The round backs on these chisels make them a joy to use. I think the blade on the 1/4" could do with bean a little shorter, as I find it dose flex just a little to much. The steel is great, a scary sharp edge that lasts well.
