Palm Handle Violin Chisels

Standard cabinet maker's bench chisels are heavy tools designed to withstand  mallet or hammer blows. Instrument makers use chisels for trimming, fitting and paring and need a tool designed for lighter, finer work. We have designed these chisels with the Luthier in mind. The shorter length (8" overall) and comfortable palm handle make controlled, precise cuts easier and more accurate. The blades are forged from the best German steel and are guaranteed to hold a sharp edge even after extended use in dense, hard woods.

3" handle, 8" overall length.
