This chisel is made with traditional materials (wrought iron & high carbon steel), and traditional techniques. Wrought iron is the premium material for blacksmiths, and the piece used here is highly refined bridge iron. The Blacksmith’s Journal Smithin Magician is a helpful tool for this project, especially if you’re working alone. Dies used include cut-off, side set, fuller, offset fuller, and sizing.
