Customer Reviews and Photos for: Irwin Blue Chip Chisels

Was a little worried about ordering these after Irwin acquired the Blue Marples line. Though they are not the same chisel as the blue marples, they are a very good, solid chisel. So far the steel seems quite good and there is a lot of it! Good solid handle and shaped quite ergonomically.

I bought the 3/8" chisel for a specific mortise I was cutting. The steel sharpened fine but did not hold the edge very long. This is not unexpected for an inexpensive chisel and I was not overly disappointed. The one thing that did irk me is the butt end of the chisel is rounded and my hammer kept slipping to the side and whacking my hand unless I was real careful. It would have been nice if the butt end was a little flatter. I began chiseling a long time ago using a hammer and have never been able to adapt to the more popular mallets -- what can I say!

The Irwin Marples hold a edge as the true Marples, 'til you hit a screw or such.
