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)

Well made tool.

Well made chisel that works great after back is flattened and polished and the edge is ground and honed. Perfect design for working on braces in the guitar. I strip, sand and oil finish the handle.

This is an "only cry once tool" (if you care for them).

The price on these is very fair, and the quality if of such, that these will last a very long time. They are not the best at holding an edge, nor do they have the finest handles, but this is still very much among the top tier quality in hand tools. As the saying goes, if you spend the big money on good tools with a good reputation, and not some silly pricey fad tools, "You will only cry once", (when the credit card bill arrives). If you buy some cheaper tools, you will cry when the break in the middle of a job, and again when you pay $140 for overnight shipping on a weekend, and again when the next bill arrives. Good quality carving tools easily can add up to $10,000+ in some shops, and $10,000,000 in others. Two Cherries tools generally do NOT arrive sharp, squared, beveled, ready to go to work. Some of the Chinese tools are getting better and better, but the quality of the steel is inconsistent, so some are nice and some are pure junk. Two Cherries' steel is consistently very good+ to excellent. No guessing, & no taking chances. If you want markedly better prepare to pay markedly more money for it. Eventually you will be grinding and honing them anyway.

Two Cherries 16mm guitar brace chisel 

By

I used the Two Cherries 16mm chisel to carve the cross braces for the Stew-Mac 000 series acoustic guitar kit I am finishing.
It is high quality steel and with the compound curves I was able to keep the chisel at the correct angles to make the cuts I wanted. With only a slight lapping on the cutting edge, it good to go.

Just getting started with this

I have a 12” X 3/4” vintage chisel with about a 10’ radius on the length of the blade. A great paring and carving chisel but a bit large sometimes. I’ve looking for a smaller brace carving chisel. I have a set (6) of Two Cherries that I like. This one is equal quality. I did have to regrind the primary bevel to square the blade prior to honing. Not uncommon with Two Cherries products.

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

By

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.
