Antique Socket Firmer Chisel 7/8 inch
This is a nice clean 7/8" wide x 10.2" long socket firmer chisel marked with a lightly stamped logo on the steel, but there is not enough their to be sure who made it. This is a good quality steel chisel, that has a good sharp cutting edge ready to use, very clean, no rust , some pitting noted in area behind the cutting edge area. The steel alone is 7.25" long. The hardwood handle is very solid, with a very good leather cap ring at the end, good condition, and fits the steel socket very snug. We do note some wood grain separations on the handle near the socket, but the taper of the socket keeps these tightly closed. Plenty of use left in this nice clean, sharp, ready to use, quality made firmer chisel!
