Veritas PM-V11 Chisels
Chisels are the workhorses of woodworking tools. Chisel applications vary from being struck with a mallet to remove large amounts of material to delicate hand paring.

When evaluating alloys for chisel blades, we recognized that chisels have inherently conflicting requirements. A chisel blade must withstand impact loads without chipping or deforming. This suggests a high bevel angle to provide maximum material to absorb the impact. Conversely, to finely pare, a low bevel angle is needed to give optimal results.
With PM-V11, we’ve found a material that performs well in both applications. Veritas PM-V11 chisels have superior impact resistance capabilities, yet can also be honed to a low micro-bevel angle (20°) for paring.
