Slicks

SlicksThese huge chisels are invaluable as finishing tools for mortise and tenon, planing of door and window sills and notches. One style features the offset socket handle fitting, half oval top surface and absolutely flat bottom planing surface. The stick axe style features a steel handle welded perpendicular to the slick for extra leverage. It is also sharpened to an edge on the two sides giving it an added versatility of being able to cut on three edges. Both styles have excellent steel which tenaciously holds a sharpening.

Japanese Slicks & Chisels

Japanese Slicks & ChiselsThese slicks and chisels feature Japanese technology of laminating a hard high carbon white steel to a softer steel. This combination provides an excellent cutting edge while maintaining blade strength. The blades are traditionally shorter but with a longer shoulder and fitted to wooden handle with a longer, heavier tang and a strong steel ferrule. The handles are red oak with the chisels having a heavy hoop on the striking end. Tempered to an amazing Rockwell c64, these are white steel and we stock both firmer and timber framing chisels. These slicks and chisels are hand-forged by renown, nearly retired, Japanese tool-maker, Matsumura.
