ACME Bench Chisel

A collborative project, the ACME Chisel is a redesign of the wood bench-chisel. Through extensive testing we designed a handle that reduces user fatigue, while increasing comfort and control.

We designed made and tested eight generations, a total of over 30 handles.

The result is an adjustable handle that leverages the use of a socket connection between handle and blade. Its oblong shape improves maneuverability, and indexed adjustments allow it to be tailored to user and task.
