John Parsons


Company founder, John Parsons, has worked on Salisbury Cathedral for over 25 years - serving a four-year apprenticeship - as a banker mason, fixer, and mould cutter. He holds a City & Guilds certificate in Craft and Advanced Craft.


John has been making tools for 10 years. He makes all his chisels by hand using forge, anvil and power hammer at his workshop in an old farrier's building, in the beautiful village of Bowerchalke, Wiltshire.


He has applied his extensive knowledge of stonemasonry to develop and design his own tooling - creating products without compromise on quality or efficiency. He is always happy to offer practical advice on the use of our range of tools.
