Scott Phillips, host of The American Woodshop interviews Peter Gill from Sorby. The cabinetmaker's chisel set features classic octagonal boxwood handles - the old favorites of yesteryear's discerning craftsmen. The unique "London pattern" of handle with turned finger contours, flat milled body, and graduated sizing promotes a more positive and natural grip for controlling your cuts. Fitted to finely machined bevel-edged blades, each tool has a leather "anti-shock" washer between bolster and handle, and brass ferrules to prevent handle splitting. Like all Sorby tools, each chisel is individually inspected and hardness tested to ensure you get a tool of the highest quality. The intermediate HSS turning set is designed for both spindle and bowl work. The set includes 3/8" bowl gouge, 1/2" round nose, 3/8" spindle gouge, 1/8" parting tool, 3/4" roughing gouge and 3/4" oval skew. These HSS tools will keep a sharpened edge about six times longer than carbon steel and resist "blued" softening from overheating during grinding or from heavy turning. Ash handles offer firm hand control during use and brass ferrules prevent wood splitting from tool pressure. Overall lengths 17" to 21".
