Two Cherries Guitar Brace Chisel

About This Item

A better shape for a delicate job.
The unique "S" profile of this chisel is perfect for carving the gently curved ends on guitar braces. As the cutting edge follows the curve, the handle is lifted up to make room for your hand.

The cutting steel of this genuine Two Cherries chisel is heat-treated to Rockwell 61C-grade hardness, and fitted with a comfortably balanced wooden handle. This is a lifetime tool that holds a wickedly keen edge.

Use it for a lot more than braces.
The "S" shape is useful for flush-cutting: paring a plug or patch to the surrounding surface. It reaches over, under and around to clean dried glue from spots that can't be reached by a straight chisel.

Blade length: 5-1/4" (133mm)
Overall length: 10-1/8" (257mm)

Works really well

By
(Customer's Reviews)


As I've said previously, most of my guitar making involves hand work, and chiseling away at a brace or cleaning out glue residue is commonplace in my shop. The previous curved chisel works very well, but I saw this and I liked the shorter length. So far, so good.

Great control and good quality steel

I never had a dog leg chisel until now. You really need these if you want good control when shaping the end grain on the braces. Just remember to place bevel face towards the sound plate when getting close to the sound board- using bevel face up will dig and splitter the wood and most likely take off more than intended.... aaaahhh not that I did that.... (just lucky that the brace was too long ) This thing zipped through the torrefied spruce bracewood.

I finally broke down and after 10 yrs bought one of these. It's not revolutionary but I sure wish I had it for the previous bills.
