Chisels are based on the Stanley 750 Bevel Edge Socket Chisels. Socket chisels are not common these days, perhaps because they are expensive to make, but Stanley and others once produced socket chisels in a vast array. Socket chisel handles are less likely to break than tang chisels, and can be replaced easily. At 9" long, our chisels are particularly comfortable in the hand and have excellent balance.
