Subject:
Parer chisel question

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
Some time ago I built one set of chisels and decided that was enough. They are multitaskers that get used for whatever a chisel needs to be use for. They are shorter than "paring chisels". Given that I don' t own a long chisel I have not had the experience of using one. What is the advantage of the longer length?
