Q:After reading a few of the less positive reviews about retaining an edge, can this chisel be sharpened? Or is it not really worth it

Answer This Question

A:  Hello William Thank you for your contact. We apologize for any trouble or inconvenience. The process for sharpening the blade is as follows Add a little oil on the sharpening stone. Place the blade on the surface of the stone; you should feel where the grinding angle sits on the stone. Then lift the blade up 5 degrees. As the chisel has a smaller width, this can wear down the oil stone, to get round this you need to use all of the stone when sharpening. If you have a small chisel, it can be sharpened on its side as there is more surface area and easier to control. Best Regards Sherri C DEWALT

    A:  I don’t see why not, though if you’re using it for fine wood working or something like that, maybe invest in a nicer set? It’s nice to keep in your tool box to make a cameo every once in a while to get that special task done and then it’s back to the box for a few months, ya know? I’ll maybe think about sharpening mine in 5 years. Or maybe then I’d just buy a new one.

    This two inch Dewalt wood chisel is a super nice addition to my collection and will likely be the last 2 inch chisel I’ll ever need. The chisel is super sharp so it makes a nice clean cut and is very precise. The blade is carbon steel so I suspect it will stay sharp for years and years. The chisel also comes with a protective cover that duals as a hanger that can be hung on a hook or peg board in your garage. The handle is a hard plastic that gives a superior grip

    This is the largest one that I have. Extremely sharp blade making cuts from your wood projects a breeze. I am by no means a professional wood worker but I do love to create and make things crude crafted. I enjoy the hobby and it is great to have fine tools that perform fantastically and are comfortable and lasting. The carbon steel tempered blade keeps their edge. And are lacquered to keep from corroding. When these became available, I ordered this 2-inch straight wood chisel and also a 3/8 inch and a 3-piece set with various sizes as I wanted a set of chisels I could depend on and love working with. I am not disappointed as these chisels perform beyond my expectations. They are a great product by DeWALT and they back up their product by the Guaranteed Tough Warranty. They belong in every woodshop I highly recommend this chisel for your woodworking needs. Two thumbs up!!

    Works well. Would have liked a 3” chisel, but this was the largest they had.

    The tool works great. A protection on the tool head would have been helpful so the hammer doesn’t accidentally hurt the hand.
