Firmer Chisels

You don't see many new firmer chisels for sale these days. They're a great utility chisel though, so pick an old one up if you see one.

Firmers are good for both paring and light mortising. Being thicker than a paring chisel they can quite lever well without bending, and have square sides to help keep it aligned, in a light mortise. At the same time, they are not overly thick, and can be angled to get into the acute corners of a dovetailed board, etc.

The chisel in this video, with it's mostly missing handle, rusty tang, and light rust and paint on the blade, has turned out lovely.
