Overview

Based on Stanley's classic 750 Series chisel design, this 5/8" Stanley Sweetheart Socket Chisel offers the rugged durability of socket chisels along with a blade shape that provides precise cuts in tight spaces. Socket chisels are less likely to break than tang chisels, but the socket design makes it very easy to replace the stock handle with one you've turned for a custom, comfortable grip. Machined in Sheffield, England, from high carbon chrome steel for easy sharpening and razor-sharp edge retention over long periods of use. Side bevels are extra narrow for working in tight corners, where precise cuts are critical. Also features a durable hornbeam (also known as ironwood) handle with a large sweet spot for striking accuracy and a comfortable feel. Measures 9" long. Honing recommended before use.
