A skew chisel not only cuts more cleanly than a square-end chisel (particularly when used on end grain), but also requires less force to do it. But it is basically a trimming chisel, excelling at flush-paring plugs or dowels and fine fitting of joints.
These beautiful 1/2" wide skew chisels were hand crafted for us by Paul Beebe as a complement to our other detail chisels. The 4" pau ferro hardwood handles are shaped for maximum control. The O1 tool steel blades are extremely sharp and hold their edge well.
