MERC Pro's Triple Edge cleanly cuts for a full 180 degrees.
It's unique cutting action easily establishes a flat base to a recess resulting in a consistently even parallel rebate.
Paring with a cranked MERC increases the quantity of wood removed per pass. It also reduces the risk of "tear out" as the cutting edges meet the grain direction at an acute angle.
Utilising the sharpened sides of the Triple edged cutter MERC can be used in confined spaces.
Other cutter profiles are available including the traditional standard cutter edge and a 1" serrated cutter for fast removal of material.
The pre-sharpened cutters can be replaced in seconds, manufactured from HSS (High Speed Steel) they retain their edge far beyond that of regular carbon steel chisels. Now there's no need to carry sharpening stones or jigs in the tool kit; just a screwdriver and another cutter. MERC Cutters can be re-sharpened like a regular chisel but at your convenience.

Design Features: We have tirelessly sought to consider every aspect of the "MERC Pro" and "Fleetwood Innovator" range of bevel edged woodworking chisels. Specific elements of their unique design and manufacture are detailed below.

Cutter insert socket: The back of the cutter receiving recess is cranked or dovetailed; so that ALL the forces generated through driving the chisel forward are transferred directly from the tip of the insert in-line to the chisel body and safely into the handle via the tang. Although it sounds unlikely the forces actually generated on the cutter retaining screws are relatively low and only really serve to hold the cutter insert into the chisel body place when the chisel is at rest.

Task specific cutter range: Unlike ALL other bevel edged chisels used for working wood, MERC Pro chisels are uniquely designed to hold a variety of different profiled cutter tips that are specifically designed to decrease the time taken in performing common tasks in joinery, cabinetry and general woodworking. Together with feedback from our professional product testers and customers, other uniquely profiled cutters will be added to a growing range specifically designed to make jobs easier with an improved finish. It's important to reiterate that these cutters are far from disposable. When they do eventually loose their edge they can be re-sharpened at your leisure back at the shop not half way through the job.

Handle and Strike cap: If the opinions of professional woodworkers, carpenters and cabinet makers were sought, They'd probably confirm that the most important part of any woodworking chisel would be the sharpened tip. We at M.POWER would not dispute this; however we have recognised that the shape, feel and balance of the handle, being the part of the chisel that's gripped in some cases for many hours at a time is of huge importance. Remarkably more time and effort was taken in the design and development of the handle than any other part of the chisel. Specifically 2 main flats lying parallel to the top and back of the chisel body were central to the design of the handle. Unlike an entirely turned or symmetrical handle, The MERC Pro handle gives the woodworker an instant indication of the location/plane of the chisel blade. It also affords the woodworker additional rotational grip should it be needed.

Finish: Placing such an importance on the ergonomics of the chisel has fed through to the finish of the main steel body. The vast majority of chisels are sold in a "ground" state, which leaves hard edges anywhere that one ground surface converges on another. After a short period in use these hard edges become uncomfortable. All MERC chisel bodies have high polish smooth finish that remains comfortable in the hand for longer.

Product Testing: Within 6 months of the inception of the MERC Pro chisel: Early pre production proto types were made and tested for 100's of hours in closed shop environments. In workshops and on-site situations. The testing and evaluation process has been exhaustive. Extreme tests were undertaken. A Prototype chisel was driven clean through a railway sleeper 12 times with no sign of any detrimental effect on the chisel.
The test results of MERC Pro bevel edged chisel has given us the confidence to classify MERC Pro as a Heavy Duty professional grade tool.

Manufacturing: At every stage of its production MERC Pro chisels are assessed and quality checked. In Sheffield, England the main chisel body under goes 9 major processes in it's manufacture. Its then quality checked prior too and after it's been assembled. Each chisel is issued with a Certificate of Authenticity which carries a unique reference number that pertains to its individual production. This Certificate is then individually signed by the member of staff who assembled the chisel and by a different member of the team who carried out the final pre-packaging inspection.
