Brand: Beta Tools
Cape Chisels have a very narrow edge for cutting or dressing slots, keyways, and oiling grooves. The head tapers in slightly behind the cutting edge to avoid binding or damaging the sides of the slot. As the sides of the head taper in, the top and bottom flare out for strength. (The side of the chisel is shown in the photo.)
The 36 Series cape chisels from Beta Tools are designed for a lifetime of professional use. Each has the series number and the length stamped in the forged hex-section grip portion.
This steel cape chisel measures 125mm (4.9") long (L) with a 4mm (0.1575") wide blade (A) and 10mm (3/8") hex grip (S). The head measures 44mm (1 3/4") long from the blade to the widest point of the flare (L1).
