Reply To: What are these chisels?

Silly question time:why would it be stuck in your leg? Wouldn’t it depend on the type of carving you are doing and how you use said tool? I’m about as far from an expert as you can get but I have seen demonstrations from people doing pretty intricate things with long handled tools so I don’t understand your comment. And in the short handled version, what is it used for?

On the other tool, the only thing I can think it might be for is rounding a corner like for beading. Does that sound vaguely realistic?

Thanks for all your input.
