Description

Nice set of 5 Berg bevel edge chisels (the 5 chisels on the right only). Made in Sweden. These are reputed to be some of the finest steel from Eskilstuna.
Sizes are approxiamately 25mm (1″), 19mm, 16mm (5/8″), 9mm and 6mm. Some are marked with the imperial dimension (those with it quoted), some are marked with nothing. The 9mm chisel is marked 10mm and 3/8″, but someone has power ground it down to 9mm.

Great chisels. The 19mm handle is almost pristine and both it and the 6mm chisel handle it’s in very good condition above the reinforcing ring. All the chisels have had the bevels reground poorly except the 19mm and the 25mm. All but the 19mm chisel have power grinder marks on them, but none are magnetic (a sign of overheating). We recommend them as users rather than a collectors set, although the 19mm chisel could certainly be suitable for collectors.

As with all Bergs bevel edge chisels these should be ground with a shallow angle grind 20-25 degrees. These chisels are more for paring and should only be gently struck. They take a wickedly sharp edge which can be fragile if hit too hard. All these chisels will need sharpening, but none of the edges is in a bad way so they won’t take too much effort. Only one handle has any logo and only this handle appears to be without a polyurethane finish.
