12mm 1/2" Flat Section Skew Chisel

Seamus Day
Best 1' skew on the market in my opinion. I bought this after watching Steve Jones, woodturner21 on youtube, who is an absolute skew master and uses this skew. Really nice on the tool rest with the radius edge and holds a razor edge. Really good value and excellent tool steel...

Dovetail Chisel Set of 4 (BACK ORDER)

Adrian Knight
These are beautiful chisels, very well balanced and a real pleasure to use for delicate joinery work.

They arrive well finished, sharp and perhaps need just a final polish to set up.

On top of that Ashley Iles offer exceptional after sales care and support. Unlike most other tool brands, if needed you can get your chisels reground and the handles replaced.

They will last most people a lifetime!
They are Made in England by British craftsmen.

25mm 1" Mk2 Bevel Edged Chisel

Simon Clark
I have owned a set of 18 carving chisels from Ashley Isles for over 40 years and always loved them and when it came time to upgrade my old chisels Ashley Isles were the obvious choice. Having worked with the new bevel edged MK2 for a couple of months now I cannot recommend them highly enough. Beautifully balanced with a superd edge and finish they are unrivalled. Treat yourself!...

25mm 1" Flat Section Skew Chisel

Jake Webb
I have bought tools from various suppliers over the years, but hand on heart this is the best chisel I have used. The feel and finish is superb. It takes and it keeps its edge well. Alongside the option to purchase the blade only and excellent price for the quality. I cannot fault these tools and I look forward to buying more in the future. It's so good I felt I had to post review....

9mm 3/8" Captive Ring Tool

Timothy Pettigrew
I have used this cleverly designed tool since 2009 and, as long as the wood being turned is free of faults, it cuts captive rings effortlessly. I have used it to cut rings of 40mm and over in diameter with an optimum ring thickness of about 9mm. It is very easy to sharpen with a diamond slip.
I use the tool in conjunction with the Ashley Iles 9mm bead forming tool which sets out the width and shapes the outside circumference of the ring before the sides are cleared with a parting tool to allow the deployment of the captive ring tool to cut out the ring completely.

A You tube video of my use of the tool can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLgSIMD0DRIR2v3CwlpOzc-

31mm 1 1/4" Flat Section Skew Chisel

Andreas Kuhn
To make it short - I love this tool and makes my hobby woodturning even more pleasing to me. The handle fits very good to my hands, the rounded sides of this skew move very easily on my toolrest and they are pleasing to my hands. I use it for spindle work to turn mainly apple, pear, walnut and ash with a bevel angle of approx. 25 degree and it holds its edge quite long. The thickness of this skew gives me a good feeling of stability using it either right- or left-handed. I use it for roughing as well as for finishing cuts and after regrinding it to a radius edge it works for me even on hollow forms (obviously they can’t be too tight) very well. At my lathe I use LEDs for lighting while turning. In my opinion the surface finish of this skew works really good with these LEDs because the reflections aren’t too intensive to my eyes. I would buy this skew again....

Chisel Tool Roll (Large)

adam wilson
Pros: Nice strong tool rolls which fit the smaller sized tools well. Good value for the money and the tools don't rust in them unlike canvass tool rolls.

Cons: Large Ashley Iles gouges are too long for the roll and the cutting edge sticks out of the end when rolled up, so watch your fingers. Ask me how I know.

Flaps to cover the cutting edges and a larger size to fit longer tools and the large handles would be a nice addition....

4.5mm 3/16" Bedan

Jason Smith
The bedan does take a little getting used to - but what a versatile tool!!! sizing, parting, cleaning up end grain, and use it instead of a skew on small spindle work, e.g. trembeurs and finials (only its better than a skew for this work). what a cracking little tool!...

Ashley Iles Mk2 Bevel Edge Chisels Set of 6

Mark Horning
A wonderful set of chisels, the fit and finish are very good and the profile is wonderful, in fact the edge profile is nearly the same as my Blue Spruce paring chisels and then it tapers up and is a bit thinner than my Lie-Nielsen's and with a a lower angle bevel. They are wonderfully balanced, in fact probably the best of the three brands that I own. The edge quality is as good as an O1 can be I think and I'm looking forward to them lasting a lifetime....
