Hultafors EDC Chisel's
« on: July 17, 2014, 08:52 AM »
So I found these and decided to give them a try, I don't have any other chisel's so thought why not buy the entire set, and a few knifes. They are made really nice and I like the holster, very good design I like that you can see the size really easy and the holes for water to escape are large and plenty full.

You have to call them. They were really nice on the phone and super fast shipping from portland to chicago area in 2 days, I was expecting to wait a week.

Personally I don't like the looks of the chisels, but I do however like the fact that they come with holsters, just like Bahco's do! Does anyone know where they are made and what steel?

From their website:

"The Chisels EDC is made of perfectly sharpened Japanese steel and a heavy-duty handle, made of glass-fiber reinforced PP-plastic, that can stand even the most hard-hitting treatment. The blade tangs are provided with barbs to prevent the blade from being forced inside the handle when hitting, making the chisel feel and perform as one solid part. In addition, to make them all highly accessible, we have also designed a smart new holster that can be easily attached to a belt, pocket, or jeans-button. "All in all, every function needed – right at hand," says Håkan Carlsson.

Still think the actual manufacture is probably China.

Cheers,

Frank

Does the holster have a belt clip on it so it will fit on a toolbelt

Any long term feedback on these?

I have a Hultafors axe, and have been very pleased.

I have been very pleased with the set of them. The most used out of the set is the Chisel knife. I really don't know how I even did somethings with out it. I have since bought snickers pants and they have a spot for the holsters so that helps. If you have any questions just PM me.

They are designed to fit on Snickers trousers or Snickers tool vests. I use the electricians knife and go through a couple a year. They are cheap and I consider them disposable.

Never tried the chisels.

They are carbon steel and they take to sharpening well. I think the price is fair.

The steel is not quite the same quality as they were before, as with older Bahco steel chisels, or the "E.A Berg", which I have plenty of and which are among the very best on the market regardless of price.

Based on a video that supposedly shows manufacturing of these chisels they are made somewhere in Asia, not in Sweden, like their axes.

I have a few EDC chisels and three HDC chisels. The HDC ones smallest size is 20mm so my smaller ones are the EDCs.
For me the HDC ones are much better quality and they transmit the strike energy better than any chisel Ive used so far.
The EDC ones are OK and the sheaths are an excellent idea for site chisels.


I have quite a few chisels and its beyond me as to why more manufacturers don't make sheaths for em, those little plastic covers are just feckless. Sort of OK in workshops but not so much out on site.
My nice Marples chisels just stay in the box nowadays, nice chisels but jeez they're not handy to carry about.

If you never leave the confines of a workshop or your garage this might not seem like an issue but something that holds the chisel well and protects it just makes my day go that bit nicer.

I also carry two Hultafors HD chisels in my go bags. Could not be happier. Tough steel that gets sharp and holds an edge well.

Agree with the positive comments on the sheath as well.
In addition, the ergonomics are just fantastic on the HD (not so on the EDC). You can lay the chisel flat on a surface and the handle is not in the way of use, and good grips and great overall build quality.

The carpenter's knife is surprisingly useful for remodeling, so I'll give their chisel a try sometime soon. I already use the Occidental sheaths for belt chisels and knives.

You might want to look at Morakniv instead. https://morakniv.se/en/

I’ve had a Hultafors’ carpenters knife and the carpenters combination set with knife and chisel for many years. The Hultafors’ was made redundant quickly after a short period of use. They loose their edge quick and the handles are dangerously slippery. In short they feel clunky.
I now keep them in my tool box for heavy hammering work.

I use a series of Morakniv, including a combination set and various specialty knifes. They are so much better at holding the edge, the handles are just so nice and the shapes of the blades are far more useful than the clunky Hultafors. Not to mention their sheats. The pro series use a sheat that can be locked together making a combination for your choice.

 Hultafors does have some good items (Ie in measuring) but they now seem a bit too commercial stamping their name on tools that are mediocre. The chisels in this thread looks nice, I’m going to try one. Imemiter; the carpenters pencil you have is the best in the hand, but the mechanism sucks quickly - it sticks and you need to clean it, until it fails again. I wish they had done it better. I’m using their carpenters flat pencils 90% of the time and these are far more versatile, and with a sharp Morakniv at hand they never fail  [big grin]
