Possibly My Favourite Chisels Review by Christopher D
Rating
I have many chisels both modern and vintage but I fancied a set of these Arno framing chisels from the first time I saw them.
Bought originally with a view to having a go at some framing type joints at home, I decided to take them on the day job with me as I had some skirting to cut down in situ with limited access and the danger of hitting a hard surface if the cutting edge went too far; ideal for demolition as they can take abuse it said in the description.
They did the job admirably and I didn't hit the hard surface and after some stropping of the edge(s) I started to use them on other tasks - a little paring, cutting out the back of a hinge housing, cleaning door ironmongery recesses after the painters had 'filled' everything and so on.
In no time I was cutting out new hinge housings and flush pull pockets with these chisels as my first choice and the two smaller sizes now go on every job with me and are very much my 'go to' chisels; I don't mind that they don't have handles as such and have got used to the feel and so long as the ends don't 'mushroom' too much from hammer blows they are comfortable and safe in the hand.
They are manufactured from a superb steel that both takes and holds an edge very well and as previously mentioned can be kept keen with a little stropping without resorting to the stone each time.
I would recommend these chisels and would be very interested if there were other styles of chisels from Arno made from the same excellent steel. (Posted on 09/07/2019)
