7pc Chris Pye Lettering Chisel Set

Double bevel lettering chisels designed by master carver Chris Pye and made by Auriou Toolworks in France. These tools are forged the traditional way: by hammering a steel blank to length before profiling. This process not only develops the best grain structure for holding a fine edge, but also allows the tools to be thinner and lighter but still strong.

As opposed to heavier, parallel-sided chisels, the Allongee style blades taper from shoulder to tip, reducing overall weight. This, combined with a very slim blade section, results in a tool that is light, strong, and easy to handle.

β€œAn absolute joy to use -- pretty much everything you need for carving the strata itself in most type selection.” – Chris Pye

This set includes seven widths: 15mm, 20mm, 25mm, 30mm, 35mm, 40mm, and 45mm.

Octagonal, Maple handles with Brass ferrules.
