One more thought on chopping mortices. English Mortices chisels are not always the best choice. For wide and deep mortices there is nothing better but for small shallow mortices such as ones for top buttons a pig sticker is overkill. A sash mortice or even better a bevel edge bench chisel would be my choice.

I guess that is why my walls are covered with chisel racks, most have a purpose and will do that job better than one that has a different purpose. The ancients knew a thing or two about working wood, shame we have lost most of that knowledge.
