A very fine chisel
I bought two of these, a 1/4" and a 1/2". They kind of just sat in the package for quite awhile until I needed to use them this weekend. I honed them to a mirror finish and razor sharpness and I must say that they are probably as good as anyone would ever need. They retain an edge very well and if you keep them honed, you will have great pleasure in using them.
