The Torquata 19mm Skew Chisel with Rolled Edges and Radius Grind
Rolled edge skews are perhaps the best type of skew chisel available. Why? Firstly, the rolled edge means if a catch occurs your tool rest isn’t damaged. Secondly, the rolled edge will glide more smoothly along your tool rest helping you achieve a smoother finish on your piece. Together this allows you to control your chisel more effectively and easily. Now add a Radius Grind. This modified grind is more versatile, friendlier and more responsive than a traditional straight grind. Used correctly, a modified skew is difficult to catch and dig into the wood. Turn safely with your Rolled Edge, Radius Grind Skew Chisel.
