Our good friend David Weaver has been very kind! Yesterday, I received the third paring chisel to complete the set of 1/4, 3/8, 3/4”. They’re 14-15” total length; steel, 26c3 which is very high carbon with a teeny of chromium to aid through-hardening and toughness; lands tiny; handles are old cocobolo. Bolsters and everything hand-forged, hand-tempered, hand-made. The steel is like Japanese white steel; takes a wonderfully keen edge.
