1" crank-neck chisel
Traditional Woodworker, #225-2100
I find this paring chisel useful for flush-trimming wood plugs, shaving tenon cheeks, and -- I'm sure this will make a few purists grumpy -- slicing glue squeeze-out off a joint. Its bent neck lets you rest the back of the chisel on the workpiece while maintaining a good grip on the handle, and it reaches places that regular bench and paring chisels just can't.
