Editor's Review: Bench Chisels

by Chris Gochnour

review date: September 1, 2008

The rectangular stained beech handle wasn’t the most comfortable, but its sizable end was easy to hit with a mallet. Unfortunately, the handle was twisted in relation to the blade, making it a bit cockeyed in use. The blade’s back was flat, but the side bevels terminated with very large flats, making it less than ideal for dovetails.

C.I. Fall chisels are available at Traditional Woodworker.
