Dovetail Chisels

Optima Dovetail Chisels

The unique blade shape of Blue Spruce Toolworks Optima Dovetail Chisels makes them perfect for light chopping, paring and precision fitting of your finest joinery. The 4" long, 1/8" thin blade is sized just right for close-up, intimate work, allowing clear visibility of your material. The unique concave side bevels allow the chisel to pare into the tightest corners of dovetail joints. They have a refinement, balance and feel that is unmatched. 

All Blue Spruce Toolworks Optima Chisels feature a lapped and polished back with flatness measured in light bands (the same system used to measure silicon wafers). This incredible surface results in edge sharpness unlike any other chisel in the world. You will never have to flatten the backs of your Blue Spruce Optima chisels, ever. And, when you unbox your new Optima Chisels, they’re razor sharp and 100% ready to go to work. No sharpening, no honing, no nothing. 

Optima Dovetail Chisel blades extend 4" beyond the ferrule. The standard chisel handles fit most hands comfortably for both mallet work and delicate paring cuts. There's also a longer version those of us with larger hands will appreciate. You have two choices of wood for the handle: Resin-Infused Figured Maple or Cocobolo. 

This set includes the four most commonly used chisel sizes, 1/8”, 1/4", 3/8” and 1/2".

This set adds two larger chisels to the 4-piece set, making it ideal for larger furniture joinery.  1/8”, 1/4", 3/8”, 1/2", 5/8” and 3/4".
