Lie-Nielsen Mortise Chisels

Geometry

Mortice chisels are designed for chopping out a mortice.  The blade is the same width all the way up. The sides are square to the back and the cutting edge is square to the sides. The back is ground flat and finished with 400 grit. The shank is very much thicker than a standard chisel to withstand the hammering and levering required to chiselout a mortice. The Lie-Nielsen chisels have a socket designed handle made of Hornbeam. So the handles are easily changed, removed and replaced.
