It’s been a while since i posted here, but a while ago I finished this custom made paring chisel. The blade length is 180mm (7”), 25mm (1”) wide with a 100mm (4”) long handle. The handturned handle is made from cherry wood, with brass ferule. The handle is slightly longer compared to the handles for my standard paring chisels, by just about 25mm (1”). The steel part is made from O1 tool steel. It was a very nice project to make and the chisel is a joy to use.

Recheck your measurements. It is clear from the photo that, if the blade is 7” long the handle must be about 4” long.

Nice piece of work, the ferrule makes it look very graceful.

Sleek looking piece of work. Looks pretty business like too.
