The Ashley Iles Dovetail set consists of four superbly controllable, short bladed paring chisels with elliptical faces that form an acute angle along the sides of the blade; this design gives excellent clearance right into the corners of a joint. The chisels come in widths of ⅛", ¼" and ⅜" as well as a nice broad 1" to give a crisp, level finish on larger areas.
For all those spots that you can't quite get to with a straight bladed chisel, Ashley Iles have also added a pair of cabinetmakers fishtail skews. The tapered blades afford much better access and the sharply skewed cutting edges will trim right into the corners for a nice clean finish.
Although designed primarily for use as paring chisels these tools are strong enough to withstand the occasional tap with a light mallet.
Like all Ashley Iles tools, the dovetail chisels are unconditionally guaranteed for the duration of the purchaser's life.
