There's an interesting couple of lines in the Bernard Jones edited Complete Woodworker when discussing what to use as a burnisher for scrapers -- "use the back of a chisel that's found to be too hard for its intended use."  To me, this means a couple of things.  One, obviously, is that a chisel can be too hard, and two, it apparently wasn't uncommon to end up with one in your kit of tools if they bothered to even mention it.  It couldn't have been a rare circumstance to end up with one.  

A lesson in there somewhere?  Probably a few...
