These chisels have many uses but are specifically designed to clean out the sockets of half-blind dovetails. The thin blades taper back from the edge at an 8:1 ratio to allow side clearance and easy access into the sockets. This is an excellent ratio for dovetails in most woods but especially hardwoods.
The edges are also machined concave to nearly a knife edge for maximum visibility and shaving clearance. The maximum length of socket is about 7/8 inches, which covers the majority of casework dovetail applications. For longer lengths of sockets you will want to use your Blue Spruce Toolworks skew chisels.
The 4.25" long A2 blade is hardened and tempered to 60 Rc and ground and honed at a 30 degree angle. Like all Blue Spruce Toolworks' chisels, it is beautifully machined and well balanced and sure to become a favourite. The chisel is available with curly (figured) maple handles.
