Butt chisels got their name from their popularity in installing butt hinges. However, they also make excellent chisels for beginning cabinetmakers because of the ease of control and the strength of the shorter blade.
These chisels are of the same style and quality as our regular bevel-edge chisels, with a flat, oval handle, high-carbon alloy blade, and well-sharpened edge. Overall length is about 7"; blade length (including bolster) is about 3".
Well-made chisels, equally usable in general carpentry. Edge guards included. The set of three includes 1/2", 3/4" and 1" chisels; the set of six includes all six sizes.
