Description

More about the Luban Socket Chisels

The Luban socket chisels were presented to us in 2022 and as soon as we saw them we know we had to make them part of our product range. Having experience with many chisels, including the premium American brands, we can easily say that these give them a ‘very good run for their money’.

The attention to detail that went in developing these chisels is easily seen when you start using them. First, the bevel edge is very low to make them perfect for dovetail work, but still high enough so as to not being too sharp on your fingers. The angle of the bevels is just right for such joinery work. Then, when doing long pairing work, you will notice the transition designed at the end of the flat of the blade and into the socket which is slightly curved to avoid the chisel lifting. Clever.

The set includes a good mix of sizes to cover most work in the workshop. Other sizes will be made available soon for those that like fuller sets. Get in touch if you have a preference.
