To baton something is to hit it with a club. This is what you do when using the side bevel of this chisel to split wedges from a section of 2x4, as one example.
A sturdy tool, the chisel has a stainless-steel handle double-scarf welded to a manganese steel blade (Rc58-60). The handle scales are resin-impregnated pakka wood. Designed to provide a comfortable grip whether used as a chisel or a knife, it is one of the handiest utility tools you can carry when working away from the shop. Measures about 6 3/4" long overall with a 25mm wide blade.
Abrasion- and cut-resistant nylon scabbard included.
