Unfortunately this tool is on an extended backorder delay and not guaranteed for Christmas delivery.
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.
“An absolute joy to use -- pretty much everything you need for carving the strata itself in most type selection.” – Chris Pye
