Narex 8882 mortice chisels have proper trapezoidally ground blades designed for fast, neat, efficient, hand morticing work. If you are only doing a few, chopping mortices by hand can be surprisingly quick, there is no set up time, just pick up the chisel and chop!
The Chrome Manganese (CrMn) steel used to make the blades of these mortice chisels was developed for Narex specifically for the purpose of making edge tools. This means that Narex mortice chisels take and hold a superb edge.
Narex chisels are forged, accurately CNC ground and isothermally hardened producing a deep, even and consistent hardness of RC59-60.
The robust faceted carver handles are made from beech and fill the hand nicely, the facets make it easier to feel whether the blade is correctly aligned and the stout design means you can strike these mortice chisels as hard as you like once the cut is established.
Please note, Narex imperial mortice chisels are ground in true imperial sizes, they are not just a rebadged version of the equivalent metric chisel.
