Narex Chisels - 8116 Cabinetmakers Chisel 26mm (natural)

The 8116 series of Narex chisels are accurately ground, affordable, Cabinetmaker’s chisels with fine edges and close tolerance backs.

Narex forge the chisel blades from Chrome Manganese (CrMn) spring steel and isothermally harden it to produce a very even and consistent bainitic structure at RC59 +/-1. In use, Chrome Manganese steel delivers similar performance to carbon steel but is more efficient to produce.

The 8116 cabinetmaker's Narex chisels have shouldered teardrop hornbeam handles. They will withstand taps from a mallet without the surface becoming marred and uncomfortable to use when paring. The hornbeam handles are lightly waxed to protect the timber whilst retaining its natural colour and feel.

  • Overall length approx 280mm (11in)
  • Blade length approx 100mm (4in)

Customer Reviews

Good for the price
I'm new to woodworking and so I wanted something not cheap as chips, but certainly at the lower end of the spectrum. These chisels are great, I ended up getting several individual sizes to get me going. I find they sharpen really quickly, however they do also seem to lose an edge quickly too. I had hoped they'd keep their edge longer than they do, but for the money I think it's a good deal - that's why I'd still give it a solid 4 stars. And thing I like about these particular chisels is the handles - great in the hand and super comfortable.
