Dovetail chisel

These chisels are special dovetail chisel.
Blacksmith shaved edge of blade.

Dovetail chisels are used mainly to clean up sharp corners when cutting fine joints, particularly in chopping dovetails. They have a triangular cross sections which offers minimal resistance in tight cuts.
