Chisel bevel thickness
On most chisels I've seen, the bevel gets thicker the further back on the blade you go. (There are a few chisels I've seen where the bevel does not.)
1. Why is this?
2. Does this create any sort of issue down the road, as the chisel is worn back?
EDIT: I guess what I'm actually concerned about is called the "side land" (the vertical side edge), rather than the side bevel. Seems like it would eventually get in the way of paring dovetails.
