In today’s post I will be doing old half round Swedish chisel restoration. It will be great addition to my other restored chisels. The chisel’s handle is really basic, so beside restoring chisel I will be making new bigger wooden handle as well.
I don’t know much about this Swedish chisel. I bought it with several other rusty hand tools. Steel is definitely a good quality. During the restoration I found out that it is produced by Erik Anton Berg (E.A.Berg) manufacturing company in Eskilstuna, Sweden.

Of course I disassembled the chisel and placed the blade in vinegar bath. I have been using same vinegar several times now. It is completely fine to do so, has the same effect even after several uses.
With a help of steel brush, file and sandpaper I managed to get nice shiny finish on chisel’s blade. And here is how it looks after many hours cleaning, filing and sanding.
This part of restoration is finished. So, now I could focus on making a new handle. Maybe you remember this piece of wood from a recent video. Anyway, I cutted in desired length and will shape it along the way.
Furthermore I got nice handle shape with small plane, file and sandpaper. I finally managed to get the shape what I wanted. Where comes chisel I placed a metal ring to prevent wood cracking.
As a last step in this restoration I assembled the Swedish chisel and applied pigmented linseed oil and homemade beeswax finish. I am quite happy with the result. The wooden handle is much longer than previous one. I did this because I want to use both hands while carving or making a groove in the wood.
Thank you a big time for checking out this post!
