I’ve found that using little epoxy to join the halves together is all that is required? Good looking little chisel by the way!

well, yes Andre you are right, epoxy could be enough but you never can bet on the bond on HSS, even with cyanoacrilates it can suddendly unstuck when glued to hardwood (hard maple in this case); by the way, I took the chance of checking the brazing of such a hard steel and found out it works great !

Just a thought. Use concrete nails and do a little grinding. Concrete nails are heat treated and hardened. You can cheaply buy a box of ‘em at Lowe’s or Home Depot. I keep a box of large concrete nails around for just these purposes.

Also, I have made two sets of carving tools. Here is a link.

Nice job Pietro. That chisel should do the trick.

How do you use a chisel on the pull stroke? Pushing with the palm of the hand I can see, driving with a mallet I can see, even across the edge in a scraping action… but a pull stroke?
