It cuts and scrapes; it peels and notches. It slits and marks; it’s a floor wax and a whipped topping… oops, wrong product. It’s Two Cherries’ new 2Cut. It may look like a chisel, but they claim it’s a universal tool for the craftsman as well a the do-it-yourselfer.
Like its name implies, the 2Cut has two different cutting edges: the 26 mm front edge like a regular chisel and the 90 mm long side edge for cutting use. The remaining side edge can be hit with a mallet. Two Cherries hardens the entire blade in a salt bath to achieve 60±1 RHC and polishes both cutting edges until they’re mirror bright.
Made in Germany, the 2Cut comes with its own micro-fiber holster to keep it safe. Its suggested retail is $58, but the only place it’s listed online is Dieter Schmid Fine Tools, where they’re charging €30 ($44) before shipping.
