I agree with the points above, but especially Lumber2Sawdust. With a hammer, you’re looking at the target (e.g. the head of the nail) so a smaller tool surface is good. With a chisel, you’re usually focused on the cut, and moving the chisel slightly to correct the direction of cut. In that situation, it’s pretty easy to swing and miss with a hammer!
