This is a hand set pitching tool with a flat carbide blade for all stone. Method of use is to angle this carbide hand chisel on its edge and strike it along a line to square and trim granite or other hard stone. When the blade dulls, flip use the other edge. The tungsten carbide on this chisel is deeply recessed into the steel body. This allows for multiple sharpening and a considerably long life. The pitching tool, is used for cutting of edges. Hold the chisel steady in your hand and never brake at the same time as you hit the shank. Avoid trying to break away stone. Straight hits will give the best result.The tools are also hardened to avoid splitting and mushroom-shaping.
They are made in 2 versions a round and oval.
The round fits better to the hand but the oval is often preferred due to the extra weight and not turning in the hand.
Made by craftman in Sweden and probably the finest stone chisel on the market.
