So what was in the brown paper package i posted on my instagram story the other day? 🧐
A 2” Barr cabinet makers chisel! 😃 I’ve admired these handmade chisels since I first saw them in a woodwork magazine nearly 20 years ago and not long after in the flesh at college during my apprenticeship!
I’ve been using a 2” Ashley Iles chisel for squaring up chunky mortises and chopping wide shoulder lines on tenons among other things for about 12 years but have always found it to be a little too long/unwieldy and the blade a bit thin, this new chisel certainly is better proportioned and has a much more robust blade, really looking forward to using this tool day to day 😁
