The chisel are available with blade widths from 4 to 40 mm. Chisels also differ in the shape of the edges. Looking at the cross-section of the blades, chisels of the form A have straight edges. In those of the form B, the edges are chamfered. Highly recommended is the 6-piece cherries Firmer Chisel Setwith girders from 6 to 26 mm wide.

Hollow chisels or Gouge are special chisel for piercing round wells. But they are also used for the production of fillets. Hollow chisels are available with straight and curved blades. Usually they are offered with radii of 3 to 25 mm and widths of 6 to 32 mm. Frequently encountered are hollow chisels at instrument makers.

Edge chisels are used by carpenters and even by wagoners to pry out very deep holes, for example for mortise and tenon joints. The shape of the edge chisel is similar to that of chisel. Their name is due to two oblique surfaces, which form an edge running in the direction of the axis.

turning chisels

Turning chisels are for work on the latheManually guided and used without the use of a hammer. For this reason, missing in the wood chisels of the percussion ring at the end of the handle. In principle, wood chisels are offered with two different cross-sectional shapes. There are wood chisels with a straight or half-round section. In addition, many special shapes facilitate the production of a wide variety of geometries on the workpiece. Some wood chisels are also available without a booklet and allow the craftsman to attach an individual booklet according to his requirements and preferences. To start working with a lathe, the 8-piece set with HSS turning knives from myMAW is recommended.

Japanese engravers

Japanese chisels are made from two different materials. The cutting edge of the chisel is made of hard carbon steel, which has a special sharpness. The rear part of the blade, however, is made of a much softer grade of steel. The blades of the Japanese pricks are very sensitive to heat and should therefore only be sharpened by hand, without any mechanical support.
If you would like to work with Japanese chisels, then the 10-piece set with high-quality chisels from Hattori or the slightly smaller set with 6 chisels from the same manufacturer is worth a recommendation.

As for almost all tools also applies to chisel: Quality has its price. However, the long life and optimal properties of the quality tools quickly make up for this apparent disadvantage.
