Ashley Iles - Bench Chisel 7-3/8-in.
Ashley Iles American pattern bench chisel is just 7-3/8-in. and works best for precision work
At 7-3/8 in. long, this is the shortest chisel and, due to its size, not the best all-around bench tool. For precision tasks that require holding the chisel in the fingertips, like dovetailing and chopping hinge mortises, it really excels. The beveled edge tapers to an extra-thin 0.0025 in., which also favors dovetailing. But the short blade means it is not a good choice for paring.
