We currently stock both Arno and Petrograd Framing chisels. Arno, forged in Thiers, France, are totally solid and virtually indestructible.The forged carbon steel blades take a great edge and hold it well - a quick touch up each morning before work should be all that is needed. The chisel backs are in line with the handle, so if necessary you can strip away some of the rubber grip to make deeper paring cuts.
The Petrograd chisels are hand forged in Russia from ШХ15 ball bearing steel, hardened to RC 55 - 58. They are beautifully precision ground on the backs and finished with well turned straight grained ash handles. These fabulous tools will serve you well.
