Editor's Review: Bench Chisels

by Chris Gochnour

review date: September 1, 2008

This chisel features a boxwood handle in the traditional London pattern with an octagonal central section. The handle is comfortable but slightly large for the scale of the tool. The back flattened and polished with minimal effort, and the side bevels are nicely softened and tapered to a small flat, which is convenient for working into tight corners.

Ashley Iles chisels are available at The Best Things and Tools for Working Wood.

I personally love the Ashley Iles tools and these chisels in particular. Mine have the same handle but in Rosewood. I do however have one in the boxwood. I love how the handle feels and I feel it gives me more control than a typical round handle. The A2 Steel goes through like butter and holds an edge great.
