Hi. Have recently bought a huge chisel on Ebay, marked T.Drayton. At first I searched for details on a manufacturing company, but once arrived suspected it was hand forged. 1841 UK census gives details for a Thomas Drayton, a blacksmith baptised 27 July 1816 at Nettleton, Lincolnshire. He married 13 October 1837 to Hannah Wilson at Caister, Newark; and although appearing in the census of 1851, he disappeared from later census records. Assume then that he was dead by 1861. Im working obviously on the theory that the chisel is his work. My question is, that the chisel appears to be a mortice pig sticker. But why so long at 18 inches. Id greatly appreciate someone telling me what this was used for being so long? Many thanks Alan.
