There are corner chisels and there are Corner Chisels. This 1″ heavy-duty corner chisel or bruzze from Robert Sorby looks like it’s been machined out of a piece of 1″ square stock, and it probably was. It ain’t for squaring shallow hinge mortises on a jewelry box — no, you’d wield a chisel like this to clean up deep mortises on furniture or timber frames.
The 18-1/2″ long chisel is made with a precision-ground 9-3/8″ forged Sheffield alloy steel blade and an ash handle separated by a leather shock washer to deaden vibrations. They also added an extra band at the striking end to prevent splitting or mushrooming.
You can pay anywhere between $100 and $150 for this UK import.
