Detailed Description

Narex Richter Mortise Chisels

Narex has crafted an exceptional line of mortise chisels for woodworkers. The Richter line of chisels is so named after Vaclav Richter, who founded the company in 1919.

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 Rc. This provides superior edge retention properties, balanced with an ease of sharpening. Care is given with the factory's finish-grinding of surfaces, so your initial conditioning of the chisels back and bevel will take very little time to complete.

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. Both a visual and tactile joy, the smoothly turned and polished ash handles nestle comfortably into the hand. Where the blades 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 equivalents.

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 Mortise chisels as a Set of 4, which includes 1/8", 1/4", 3/8" & 1/2" widths.
