Barr Quarton has been working with tool steel for over 18 years, and has applied his knowledge and skill to making the finest hand-forged, individually tempered, woodworking tools available. In a day and age where most tools are drop-forged, stamped or cut out and then poorly tempered, a majority of people have never had the pleasure of using a hand-forged tool. Hammer forging packs the steel, producing a very fine-grained, dense metal. This process also introduces more carbon into a smaller area. As a result you get a blade with remarkable edge-holding ability without being brittle. Chisels feature fitted socket handles, steel ferrules, and are delivered shaving sharp! A Timber Framer's Favorite.
