Detailed Description

Narex Richter Cryo-Treated Bevel Edged Chisels

Narex has crafted an exceptional line of cabinetmaker’s beveled edged chisels for woodworkers. This new Richter line of chisels is so named after Narex’s founder in celebration of the one hundredth year anniversary of the company.

They feature tang-style blades, drop forged from high quality chromium-vanadium steel. The blades 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. (Note:due to the narrow profile, the 1/8" width does NOT have beveled edges)

Fitted to the blades are elegantly shaped European ash handles. Finished clear with boiled linseed oil and shellac, the nuanced beauty of the wood grain remains fully visible. The handles measure 1-1/4" at their largest diameter and are 4-11/16" in length measured from the ferrule. Both a joy to the eye and the hand, the smoothly turned and polished ash handles nestle comfortably into the grip. Where the blade’s tang inserts into the handle, a sturdy stainless steel ferrule bolsters the connection and a leather washer cushions impacts from mallet use. Widths shown are actual imperial dimensions, not metric equivilents.

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 the Richter bevel edged cabinet chisels as a set of 5 in a fitted wooden box.
