Chisels have ancient origins, with both the tools themselves and evidence of their use found throughout the archaeological record. Chisels have been used by woodworkers, masons, metal workers and blacksmiths, as well as some the world’s great sculptors—including Rodin, Brancusi and Donatello. Chisels have a number of applications, including carving, cutting, joint making, finishing, sculpting, flooring, engraving and more. Carpentry hand tools and woodworking and wood carving tools are readily available. Decide on your desired blade length, then pick from wood chisels, cold chisels, bench chisels or a mallet and chisel set.
