    Beveled edged bench chisels are the most common and the most useful chisel you will find in a workshop. They are short, which enables the maximum amount of energy to reach the cutting edge when they're struck with a mallet. It also makes them easy to handle.They are beveled on the sides, which allows maximum access to dovetails. These chisels are the most important first set of chisels for any shop, and they come in the widest array of sizes available. Some versions are hooped to strengthen the handle for malleting, but this isn't essential, and plenty of styles have no extra hooping.
    Because of the importance of getting the right set of chisels, we carry a very large selection of different styles, shapes, and price ranges. We also have a very large selection of Japanese chisels, including Japanese dovetail chisels which were designed for fine joinery.
