Ashley Iles - Dovetail Chisel 12mm

Regular price £21.90

Only available "To Order" - Please Call or Email for availability


Ashley Iles - Dovetail Chisel 12mm is hand forged, wet ground and high carbon O1 Steel offering great edge retention at a low 25 degrees angle designed for end-grain paring with virtually no lands (edges) on the edge of the chisel for getting right into the corners of joints.

Sizes range from 1.5mm to 25mm - the finest 1.5mm for cleaning up single saw kerf London Pattern dovetails, 6mm and 9mm for standard drawer dovetails and up to 25mm for larger carcass dovetails, these chisels give the ultimate feedback when hand dovetailing. 

The Dovetail Chisels are unique in design and are ground with a shallow half round top profile allowing you to get into the tightest of corners when paring dovetails and fine hand jointing.

The light traditional chisel construction means the tang enters the brass ferrule to give a sure footed feel in the Bubinga carver's handle and will withstand light mallet work and great chisel control.

Use them for paring and fitting of show and decorative dovetails rather than for more heavy chopping work.

Available individually or as part of a Set of 6.
