    Comments about Irwin Blue Chip Chisel, 1/8" :

    Current project involves cutting thin mortices in steamed beech and it performed well here. I sharpened the chisel before use and it has held it's edge longer than I expected while working on this hardwood. Overall I'm pleased with this new addition to my tool set.

    Comments about Irwin Blue Chip Chisel, 1/8" :

    A relative gave me a sofa table that showed years of abuse by the children including "stuff" in the groove around the top. The width of the groove is 1/8". When I found this chisel on Woodcraft, I purchased it. My thinking is to start with a simple solution first. The factory edge worked well to clean the bottom of the groove, and I used a wider chisel for the sides of the groove.

    Comments about Irwin Blue Chip Chisel, 1/8" :

    Very decent chisel. Back reasonably flat and required only a little work to lap. Steel sharpens quickly and holds reasonable edge. Would switch from 25 bevel (factory) to 30 degree for better edge durability. Good for handwork, paring and the likes. Won't hold up to hard usage (don't use it with a hammer - not designed for that). I bought to add to my set of 6 Irwin I already own. I've been pleased with the service I've gotten after spending the requisite time to tune them up.

    I found the 1/8" chisel great for cleaning out 1/4" routed slots. So far its kept a decent edge, and will take some punishment.
