So I found this old chisel, made of real good swedish steel from eaberg eskilstuna. Alas the handle could handle no more. Well honestly it properly could take quite a few more years of pounding, but I wanted a shorter fatter handle. As I generally feel my chisels are to long and bulky.
I turned the handle out of a scrap piece of oak, and reused the little brass ring from the old handle. Then I cleaned up the steel a little, very little, and sharpened it on the grinding wheel.
This was mostly about getting some piece of mind, a good way to spend an hour. But I hope this tool holds up. :)
PS. My very first project on LUMBERJOCKS!
