Fishtail Chisels are perfect for reaching the back corners of half-blind dovetails and paring other hard-to-reach areas. Their unique shape offers versatility for right and left hand recesses.
Made from A2 Tool Steel, hardened to RC 60-62. Maine-harvested Hornbeam handles. Overall length is approximately 8".
The bevel comes ground sharp at 25º, but a higher secondary bevel is advisable, depending on the wood and how the chisel is being used. On very hard woods, like oak, hard maple or exotic species, take lighter cuts and use a higher secondary bevel. Additional honing is recommended.
