I have small hands and weak eyes.
I find normal length bench chisels too long. Plus, I rarely need the normal depth of the cut normal chisels provide.
Butt chisels’ handles are too short to use with a mallet.
Are there SHORTER chisels out there?
Shorter than the 8 3/4″ – 9″ ones I see everywhere?
Japanese chisels look shorter, but don’t seem to be, actually.
AND, if I need to make my own, got some advice?
(I was thinking of buying old ones and cutting off part of the blades and resharpening..lot of work.)
