Bench chisels are the go-to chisels you’ll use for countless tasks in woodworking — joinery, chopping, trimming, paring and so forth.
Japanese chisels are made with a combination of these two designs. The blade has a tang but also connects to a socket. Chiseling is often done in tight quarters, such as in the acute angle at the base of the tails in dovetail joinery, so the profile of the blade is important. Chisels generally do not come from the manufacturer with a fully sharpened edge – that’s your job.
Special mention should be made of Japanese chisels but not just because they happen to be my favorite! I generally advocate getting the best quality tools you can afford — buy right and buy once — and that advice applies here as well. A set of the five sizes of top-of-the-line Lie-Nielsen or Veritas chisels will cost about $300, more for Veritas” PM-V11 steel. The chisel with the yellow handle (stained boxwood) in the article is a Marples about 35 years old. For first set of chisels – buy a cheap set on Ebay and learn to flatten and sharpen.


The other route, going directly to top quality chisels, can also work and so that suggestion is included in the article. Consider the balance, weight, length, and contours of the tool, keeping in mind that you will most often hold a chisel by the blade and handle such as when paring, or the blade alone such as when chopping, rather than by the handle alone.
Therefore, the reputation of the maker is the determinant for your choice in purchasing chisel steel.
However, I would again advise woodworkers that a range of chisel sizes, along the lines suggested in the article, is a necessity for virtually all furniture making.
Expect to pay at least $200 – $300 for very good quality Japanese chisels, and more for those from the very top makers. Socket chisels are made by fitting the tapered end of the wooden handle into a corresponding conical hollow at the top end of the blade. However, a good quality chisel will have a very flat back that requires little further refinement, and an accurately formed primary bevel.
Price is somewhat a guide to quality but the advice of a reputable, experienced dealer of Japanese tools should be sought when selecting chisels to meet the needs of your woodworking.
I think Narex bench chisels at about $12 apiece, for example, are a better bet for the frugal woodworker than the unknowns of Ebay.

In Japanese chisels, the sides usually meet the back at a slightly acute angle, as shown below, to similarly facilitate such work. The handle of a tang chisel is usually reinforced with a band of metal at the lower end called a ferrule. The hard steel of a high quality Japanese chisel produces a cutting edge that is unmatched in sharpness and durability by any Western chisels. As shown below, the back of these chisels also has a shallow hollow to facilitate sharpening.
If you upgrade later, the initial outlay will have been small and you could still use the Narex chisels as a good second set or even for DIY work.
