My #9 is based on my experience… Namely memories of abusing my dad’s chisel when I was a kid. That same chisel is the same one I still use today, and it STILL needs to be ground down to get rid of the “missing” chip from the blade… it’s sharp enough to use, but I have to be careful to not leave marks behind…
