Hi Everyone. I was wondering if anyone had a link to a good explanation of the various types of chisels. I just know “chisel”...or more precisely “big chisel,” “Little Chisel,” “chisel that opens paint cans,” and “chisel that I’m mad at because it fell on my foot and caused an owie.”

If anyone knows of a link to a proper explanation of chisels and their uses and maintenance…it would be greatly appreciated.
