Quangsheng 4 Piece Socket Chisel Set


Based on the popular Stanley 750, these socket chisels combine a strong design with nice fine edges and good heat treatment.

Socket chisels are an ancient design, while they were largely replaced by tanged chisels in the UK during the 1800's both designs have remained popular in America. 

The handles are turned from Rhodesian copalwood, selected for it's hardness and dimensional stability, and are held in place by friction (same principle as a Morse taper). They need seating initially, trimming the tip and shoulder as necessary until a tight fit is achieved. With this done they hold remarkably well, when fully seated there is no way you can pull them apart with your hands, although for peace of mind it's worth getting into the habit of giving them a sharp tap before use.

If you want to remove the handle, hold the blade and tap the side of the handle on a hard surface/bench and it will become loose. To re-seat it, tap the butt end of the handle on a hard surface/bench with the blade pointing straight upwards.

The blades on these are quite hard so we recommend honing them a slightly steeper angle of 35 degrees rather than the usual 30.

  • CrV steel hardened to RC61
  • Sizes 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1”
