Ashley Iles MkII Bevel Edged Chisel 25mm

by Ashley Iles
Sold out

Ashley Iles Bevel Edged Chisels are one of our Biggest Sellers and Peter Sefton's chisel of choice for pure quality and value for money. 

These Mk 2 Bevel Edged Chisels are made from high carbon O1 steel and are ground to have very fine lands (edges) on the sides; they're great for general bench work and dovetailing.  The fine hand-ground blades are beautifully made in England with very comfortable turned Bubinga handles set onto the tangs with brass ferrules.

The accurately heat treated oil quenched blades are produced and tested to RC60-61 from tip to shoulder to ensure a life long quality hard working steel that holds the keenest of edges whilst being quick to sharpen and maintain.

The handles are individually sized getting bigger with the larger blades to give great balance and pose. The backs are ground with a slight concave surface to make initial blade polishing a very quick process and are easy to maintain as quality cabinetmaker's chisels.

Great for both paring and general mallet bench work they come with a life-time warranty from us backed by the Ashley Iles family-run business.

These truly beautiful hand made chisels are the choice of professional furniture makers and keen woodworkers looking for excellent value for money and quality.

Ashley Iles M II Chisels

As we all know using a chisel straight from new just don’t work, the back has to be ground flat then a micro bevel has to be incorporated in order to have a usable tool and this takes time, enter the Ashley Iles chisel, this has all the work done for you with just a final bit of work with a high grit stone on the back to polish up and
A micro bevel ground in and your good to go all in under 2 minutes. They feel great in the hand, not to long and perfectly balanced and for the price well this is a no brainer, I have bought chisels costing 3 times the price in the past and to be honest these Ashley chisels are far better

Incredible Chisel

These chisels are insanely good. They are really quick to flatten the backs and sharpen. The edges hold sharp really well. I ground mine to 25deg primary and 30deg secondary bevels, only because I use these for general bench work. As they come they are perfect for pairing work. The handles are beautiful and they are nicely balanced. And to add they are handmade in England!! The service from WWWS was very impressive and I have just ordered a couple more sizes! Definitely would recommend.

Surprised to find not square ground

I have a Tormek T8 grinder so now everything has to be super square and correctly ground - just has to, to justify the cost. When I received this chisel it was put straight on the Tormek to get a truly sharp edge. To my surprise the cutting edge was approximately 1 mm out of square. I thought it was me to start with. But after double checking for squareness of the jig I found that I was grinding more in one edge than the other. No big deal I guess but still not exactly “premium” quality checking. Otherwise nice chisels I must say. Wish I’d taken pictures now I see the next step in this review lol
