Re: "Premium" or "Dovetail" chisels?

david weaver
We often just hone the backs of japanese chisels if the hollow gets too close to the edge, and I'd do the same thing with that (it would be easier on the narex chisels because the steel is much softer).

On wider things like plane blades, it's easier to tap out, and some do tap out really wide chisels, but it's usually easier to just hone the metal away unless you're using only natural stones.
