Customer Reviews

If you have ever cut a half-blind dovetail then you know how challenging cleaning out the pin socket is, especially in the corners.  Not happy with the skew and fishtail chisels available, I designed and made my own half-blind chisel and they work great!

  • These chisels are "Cosmanized" from a WoodRiver 3/8 inch socket chisel with a Bubinga wood handle.

  • Fishtail-shape makes accessing the back corners of the half-blind socket easy.

  • Sides of the chisel tip are sharp to sever fibers on the pin side wall and makes it easier to get into the corner.

  • One chisel does both corners verses a left and right set of skew chisels.

  • Pushing through endgrain is tough; unlike skew chisels, my chisel keeps your line of force straight.

  • My students love them!  Try it once and you will never want to cut half-blind dovetails without it.

Cosmonized half blind dovetail chisel.

One of two I purchased online. Aside from the extra control you have in the corners of a half blind, I also liked that the chisels have a removable handle, as this assists with sharpening.

Customized Half-blind Chisel-Woodriver 3/8

I like this chisel. The cutting points have been sharpened to a dovetail shape, which allows for better access into tight places i.e. tail and pin waste clean out.
