The short MHG chisels are sometimes referred to as butt chisels.  However, we prefer to call them short MHG chisels as they are too long to be classed as butt chisels (in our our opinion).  

Sizes: 6mm, 12mm,16mm, 20mm, 26mm in quality leather roll bag.

These chisels are relatively short and ideal for work where the recess depth is not greater than 70mm.  They are similar in length to Japanese chisels.  This short chisel is preferable to chisels of normal length if space is tight.   

These chisels are designed to be used with a wooden mallet.

The blade is made of high quality Chromium-vanadium (CV) steel with a hardness of 61 HRC (+/-1), ensuring outstanding cutting durability.  The cutting edge angle is 27°.

Total length: 205 mm, blade length  is approx. 70 mm long.

About MHG Chisels with Oiled Round Ash Handles

 MHG chisels with oiled round ash handles with flats and the short series with oiled ash handles have been manufactured by grinding the side bevels right down to the chisel face.  This design lets you right into the corners of dovetails and mortises.

Note: In the interest of safety, MHG has left approx 0.4mm untouched along the straight sides, to avoid a sharp edge on the sides.
