I finally got around to making handles for a couple of the Swan chisels I picked up at an estate sale about 2 years ago. Both of the handles are turned from white oak. The copper trim was made from cuttings from regular copper plumbing pipe. Both chisels have been flattened and sharpened — frighteningly sharp. I’ve used them several times now and they work well.

Great job. The copper looks sharp.
