Here's a type of chisel, not really talked about much. I've always been a garage sale and flea market junkie. In my early days power tools were not always in the budget. There were always procedures that required handwork. Most of the time the sellers had a table full and just called 'em all chisels. This one is called a "slick". It's primarily used by timber framers and boat builders. I find it useful in paring wide surfaces. They are in a variety of widths, some up to 3-4", and some 14"-16" or longer. They are not made to smack, but to "pare" with.
