Plastic chisel guards are OK for chisels that never leave the shop, but they are inadequate for tools that travel. These galvanized steel guards are of a design that ensures the cutting edge of a chisel never touches the tip of the guard. The chisel is fully protected even if the chisel is dropped blade-down.
A rare-earth magnet holds the guard firmly in position, ensuring forces are absorbed by the chisel face and bevel, not the cutting edge. Available in 1", 1 1/2" and 2" widths.
