If you have ever cut a half-blind dovetail then you know how challenging cleaning out the pin socket is, especially in the corners.  Not happy with the skew and fishtail chisels available, I designed and made my own half-blind chisel and they work great!

  • These chisels are made from our Rob Cosman IBC 5/8 inch bevel edge chisels with custom fit cherry handles. 

  • Has a 13/16 inch cutting depth.
  • Dovetail-shape makes accessing the back corners of the half-blind socket easy.

  • Sides of the chisel tip are angled to easily fit into the corners of the half-blind socket.

  • One chisel does both corners verses a left and right set of skew chisels.

  • Pushing through endgrain is tough; unlike skew chisels, our half-blind chisels keeps your line of force straight making it easier to push through the endgrain.

  • My students love them!  Try it once and you will never want to cut half-blind dovetails without it.

Half blind chisel

It is a lot lighter in weight than I expected. I didn't find it as good as expected for cleaning out blind dovetail corners compared to using a narrow straight chisel which being smaller can generate more force to cut with.
