Detailed Description

Narex Richter Cryo-Treated Bevel Edged Chisels - Set of 5

This set includes five of the most commonly used sizes of bevel edge bench chisels from Narex's premium Richter line. 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4" & and 1" chisels come in a handsome felt-lined, fitted, finger-jointed birch-ply wooden box stained the color of medium walnut and has a brass plated snap-hasp for the lid. The box measures 11-7/8" x 7-1/2" x 1-3/4". (Chisels sizes are actual inch measurements, not metric equivalents.)

Richter chisels are so-named after Narex’s founder, Vaclav Richter, in celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the company. They feature tang-style blades, drop forged from high quality chromium-vanadium steel, which are cryogenically treated and tempered to a minimum of 62 Hrc. This provides superior edge retention properties, balanced with an ease of sharpening ability.

Care is given with the factory's finish-grinding of surfaces, so your initial conditioning of the chisel’s back and bevel will take very little time to complete. The chisel's side bevels along the blade slope down to an ultra-thin edge profile, allowing the chisel to reach into tight areas like the corners of dovetail sockets.

The elegantly shaped European ash handles are finished with a mixture of boiled linseed oil and shellec so the beauty of the wood grain is fully visible. The turned and polished handles are 1-1/4" at the largest diameter and 4-11/16" from the end to the stainless steel ferrule. The handle-steel connection is cushioned by a leather washer.

Richter chisels are cryogenically treated during the manufacturing process. After initial hardening, cryogenic treatment cools the steel down using liquid nitrogen to temperatures as low as −190 °C (-310 °F). This completes transformation of austenite, which increases both the hardness and toughness of the steel.

We also offer Richter bevel edged cabinet chisels individually in these and other sizes.
