RICHTER chisel handles are made of domestically and responsibly harvested European Ash wood known for its strength, toughness and attractive grain. The ergonomic handles are sanded and subsequently hand-polished for maximum comfort and control. Solid stainless- steel ferrules protect the handles from splitting, and leather washers absorb the shock of mallet blows.


RICHTER chisel blades are made from the highest quality Chrome Vanadium (Cr-V) steel using traditional drop-forging methods. Blades are then hardened, cryogenically treated and tempered to achieve a minimal hardness of 62 HRc. Subsequent fine-grinding and polishing ensure a mirror-like surface with ultra-thin sides allowing reach into tight spaces, making them the perfect tool for dovetailing. The backs are ground flat to our smallest production toler- ances, requiring minimal flattening during initial sharpening. The front bevel is ground at 24°. A secondary micro-bevel is advisable depending on how the chisel is used.


The supplied edge guard should always be used when chisels are not in use to prevent dam- age to the sharp cutting edge and for user protection. Our RICHTER chisel box is perfect for safe storage; however, tool rolls are also available. As with any kind of tool steel, the blades can rust when unprotected. Always protect the blades from rust with oil, wax or other corrosion inhibitors.
