New Chisels from Lie-Nielsen
Thomas Lie-Nielsen brought this long bladed chisel along to the recent Talking Tools event in Oxford. I think it will be of interest to those who like Patternmaker’s Paring Chisels. They should be on sale in a couple of months or so and will be available in A2 or 01 steel.
The chisel behind with the long handle is in 01 steel and I will be experimenting to find out how low an angle I can sharpen and use it at.
It has been clear to me for some time that many oilstone users find the sharpening of A2 steel difficult. Now that these beautifully ground chisels are being made in 01 as well as A2, I hope everyone will be happy!
