Coachmakers Extra Strong Paring Chisel by BUCK & HICKMAN - 1 1/2 inch
A scarce 11/2 inch wide heavy duty or extra strong coachmakers or coachbuilders bevel edge paring chisel by BUCK & HICKMAN.
Much thicker than the cabinet makers bevel edge paring chisels.
Coachmakers' chisels are typically of the firmer variety and the bevelled edge versions are rarely seen.
Marked 'BUCK & HICKMAN LTD AM' on the top of the blade, the 'AM' mark may be that of the Air Ministry but this usually comes with a Crown and date.
Very good double hooped ashwood handle with steel ferrule and hoop.
8 inch long blade, from the bolster to the cutting edge.
Some minor surface pitting and staining spots, this chisel will require sharpening and honing before use.
No previous owner's stamps.
145/8 inches overall length.
