Henry Taylor Registered Mortice Chisel Review By: I.Ball
Category: Mortice Chisels
Manufacturer: Henry Taylor Tools
Tool Type: Registered Chisel
This Henry Taylor Registered Mortice Chisel review covers the Registered Chisel
produced by Henry Taylor Tools of Sheffield, England.
The Henry Taylor Registered Mortice Chisel is a long-standing traditional woodwork chisel of standard carpenters chisel length with a thicker blade to withstand the extra pressures of chopping mortices and other more heavy duty jobs.
The Henry Taylor Mortice Chisel is available in sizes ranging from 1/4" (6mm) - 1" (25mm).
The length of these blades are approximately 140mm - 155mm.
These chisels are made from the long standing Henry Taylor Tools who have been making
hand tools since 1834.
The chisels are made using traditional techniques with the blade being carefully forged, correctly hardened and tempered to give a blade that holds a good edge.
The chisel is finished with a double-hooped Ash handle. The extra hoop on the striking end of the handle is in place to help prevent the end of the handle splitting out from potential increased workload.
The chisel also has a leather washer sat between the handle and blade to help absorb the shock.
These are made by hand through a series of processes and not in a factory production machine / drop stamping mould.
Having been to the Henry Taylor factory, I can safely say the tools are made using
old techniques, traditional tools and old machinery, keeping the golden age of Sheffield
tool making alive.
Usually supplied in a plastic sleeve.
