IBC Premium Walnut Handled Bench Chisels
IBC Premium Walnut Handled Bench Chisels

IBC Premium Blades: According to woodworking experts, the blade is the most important component in hand planes. The blade is just as important in woodworking chisels and other wood cutting tools, as well, for the same reason. Hand planes equipped with blades contracted to IBC have already won ‘Tool of the Year awards. IBCs retail brand of premium hand plane replacement blades released in 2009 quickly received high praise from many woodworking experts, including an endorsement from woodworking guru David Charlesworth and an industry award by 2010 for our matched blade and chip breaker sets. These IBC blade sets improve the performance of older bench planes to a level that compares to modern premium quality versions, for a fraction of that cost. To repeat that performance with our woodworking chisels we paired IBC premium blades with our new innovative handles that are as finely crafted and made them affordable.

IBC chisels combine the benefits of both the tang and socket designs. The blade tang extends through a hardened steel ferrule and into the wood, but instead of glue, it has a finely threaded end that attaches it to a tapped 3/8” round x 3.00” long hardened steel core inserted through the center of the wood. The other end of the handles steel core precisely and securely attaches the aluminum striking cap. Tightening the handle and sheathed blade with a quick twist, seals the chisel together by compression. Designed to be extremely rigid tang style chisels with strong handles that can also detach like socket chisels, but only if or when you want them to. When the handle is detached, the blade can be separated from the ferrule, as well, to lay it on a flat surface for re-sharpening.

Quick Blade Changes: Simply re-insert the exposed blade into its plastic sheath as shipped, to easily and safely change from one IBC chisel blade to another one ready to cut, in seconds. We have repeatedly tested how long it takes us and the results are always less than 20 seconds.

Customizable Handles: When the handle is detached the wood can also be easily separated from the steel centre core and back cap to replace with whatever species and/or custom profile desired.

Chisel Blade: Made from AISI High Vanadium A2 tool steel fully stress relieved, triple tempered, cryogenically treated and hardened to 60-62 HRC. Back sides have a semi-mirror finish. Beveled sides are ground with a small 90° flat for comfort and safety during use. Cutting edges are ground with a primary bevel @ 30° for the lower sizes up to 3/8” and @ 25° for the larger sizes up to 1”. All cutting edges are ground square to the two side flats, with a 2° higher micro bevel and ship sharp enough from our factory to cut the hair on your arm. Bench chisel blade length including the tang is 6“.

Ferrule: Made from a solid round stress and fatigue resistant steel bar hardened to 54-56 HRC with a double temper for added strength. Center bored, reamed, and flat on the top and bottom to slip over the tang and seat flush and firm against the flats on the blades two shoulders at one end and the flat top of the wood at the other. This ferrule design and solid construction protects the blade tang, bolsters the wood and provides the chisel with tremendous strength to withstand the lateral stresses from prying. Hand polished.

Handle Hardened Steel Core:. Made from a 3.00” long x 3/8” round stress and fatigue resistant steel bar and hardened to 54-56 HRC with a double temper for strength and durability. Its finely tapped ends attach to the threaded blade tang and striking cap precisely and securely to make these chisels extremely rigid. It is also hollowed and milled open in its mid section for balance and weight. At less than 20 grams, it still has more than enough tensile strength to easily seal the chisel together indefinitely or, repeatedly.

Handle Striking Cap: Made from a solid round aluminium bar, it has a precision turned domed top and a finely threaded centre post that is precisely and securely attached to the hardened steel core. Its wide flat back seats flush and firm against the matching flat on the back of the wood for a wide area of contact. Tightening the handle compresses the back cap against the wood, fixing both firmly in place. Hand polished on domed surface. Weight: 10 grams.

Handle Wood: IBC Chisel handles are currently available with Maple or Walnut wood. Each wood is 3 1/2” long, centre bored to fit its steel core and cut flat on top and bottom for a wide area of contact with the hardened ferrule the aluminium back cap. Tightening the chisel compresses the wood between them to seal it in place. When the handle is detached, the wood can be separated from the steel core and back cap to customize the handle with your own wood species and / or profile.
