Narex 8116 Cabinetmaker's Chisels - 10mm

by Narex

NAREX cabinetmaker’s chisels have an improved cross-section from previous designs. The sides are ground thin to minimise friction when cutting which is particularly useful for dovetail work.

The blade is forged from Chrome Manganese (Cr-Mn) steel and heat treated up to 59 HRc (Rockwell Hardness Scale). The Chrome Manganese (Cr-Mn) steel used in Narex chisels is a low-alloy high-carbon steel developed specifically for making edge tools using the isothermal hardening method. This produces very strong chisels with edge taking and holding properties similar to carbon steel tools. Grind at 25 and hone at 30 degrees. Honing angles can be adjusted to suit your needs - a little steeper for greater edge durability or a little shallower for easier cutting. 

The ergonomic handle is made from hornbeam, with a brass plated ferrule. Hornbeam is a dense wood, perfectly suited to light mallet work.

Blade length: 124mm
Total Length: 258mm
Handle Size: 134 x 31mm

    Narex Chisels

    I purchased 3 different sizes of these chisels, they arrived the following day and I am pleased they are as advertised. They need to be properly sharpened for purpose once unpacked, but I expect them to perform well from what I see.

    Great Value

    Really nice and well made chisel, worked well straight out of the box and required very little additional tune up. Chopped 4 mortices in 2” oak no problem, really like the narex brand, quality and a decent price. Will be getting more to complete the set.
    Thanks as always for the great service and quality selection of tools on offer from the woodworkers workshop.

    Good quality reasonable price

    I’m now living in France, where I’m finding it very hard to find quality tools.
    Jim has continued to be very helpful and everything I order arrives well packed and in good time.
    The Narex chisels are very well made and a pleasure to use as with all the tools I have ordered from the wood workers workshop.
