Editor's Notes

August 29, 2019:

Like masonry chisels, concrete chisels prove useful when you’re clearing mortar from brickwork or cutting concrete slabs apart. They also can aid in demolition, especially when they’re designed to be inserted into an electric rotary hammer. Smaller, strictly handheld selections can be useful for rockhounding and sculpting.

The Stanley FatMax FMHT16578 is a tool that’s both durable and safety-minded, with a protective component that safeguards your hand from glancing hammer blows. Its soft handle is comfortable in the hand, and it’ll stand out on your tool bench, thanks to its bright yellow color. You can buy it with confidence, thanks to its lifetime warranty.

For a flat-blade set that’s ideal for chipping brickwork, metal, and stone, look to the Maxpower All Purpose, which comes with three tools of varying sizes, and each fits comfortably in your hand. Like the Stanley FatMax, they’re easy to spot, in this case because of their cheery red color. They come with a convenient canvas storage bag that protects them when not in use.

The Makita 3 Piece is a handy set for demolishing masonry, tile, cinder block, and other materials, and it comes with three bits – two that are flat and one that is pointed. They’re for use with an electric rotary hammer. They’re heat-treated for strength, so they’ll hold up under heavy use. And, they’re conveniently laser-etched for identification.

Using sharp chisels such as these for cutting and carving is dangerous and should only be done by trained professionals. Eye protection should also be worn to avoid injury.
