It may sound like a ridiculously wide size for a dovetail chisel but you'd be amazed how often this 1" (25mm) Ashley Iles Dovetail chisel comes in handy.
Cleaning between widely spaced pins, using one edge at a time for the final paring stroke on the cheeks of sockets etc.
The rounded back of this chisel makes it supremely comfortable to pare the blade is wafer thin and the balance is absolutely perfect.
If I have an 'any chisel will do' situation, this is almost invariably the one that I will reach for first.

Big but not brawny.
Broad blade, really useful for one-pass paring of dovetails of all sizes. Super-sharp on arrival but not quite ground perfectly square, otherwise a 5.
