Topic tags/keywords: question

I am in the market to purchase a 4 sets of skew chisels. I have read all the reviews and I have the time to get Narex skew chisels in shape but I am looking for chisels made by the some company that has 6mm, 12mm, 20mm and 26mm or 1/4”, 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” Skew chisels.

Secondly, I have never purchased anything from the UK or where you pay in Pounds. How long does it take to get a set of chisels from a company abroad? I can manage these company prices.
Crown Tools
Two Cherries tools
Narex Tools

I am very interested in 1/8” skew chisels as well.

Flea market chisels ground right & left skew. The two on the end are carving skews, angle both sides.

Bob, yes reground to suit. I once made a crude gouge from a straight chisel.

Regrinding some chisels is great. as for buying, why not Lie-Nielsen, or tools for working wood, or lee valley.
I’d try those before I’d buy out of Europe.

If I wanted a full set of skews, I’d regrind something I liked
the handles on. They don’t often need hitting with a mallet
so the edges hold up ok even if the steel isn’t the toughest.

I have a pair of Crown skew chisels. They came with a nice
polish and take a good edge. They are pretty looking
for sure. The ferule on one of them cracked. They
are the only Crown chisels I’ve had but considering the
cracked ferule I’m ambivalent about buying Crown.

Have your say...
