Manufacturer: Wm Marples And Sons

Tool Type: Sash Mortice Chisels

Model No:


The William Marples And Sons sash mortice chisels were fitted with a carbon steel blade with uniform hardness and temper and were ground to a 25 degree angle. The blade's on these chisels were longer and thicker than the standard Marples mortice chisels which gave these the ability to be used in deeper morticing work.

These sash mortice chisels each had a carving / carver pattern handle which was usually made from Boxwood. These mortice chisels were also made with an Ash handled version.

They were fitted with a leather washer between the bolster and the handle to help absorb shock from the heavy work these tools are used for.
