Knife & Chisel Reviews & Buying Guides
From folding pocket knives and utility knives to woodworking chisels, we put our hands on everything that cuts or slices. When Pro Tool Reviews evaluates pocket knives, we look for blade steel, handle design, sharpness, and ergonomics. A knife has to fit your hand well and offer an edge that doesn’t dull after just a few cuts.
Utility knives have found a place in our heart and we use them for nearly everything in the shop. The best utility knives feature either a snap-off blade design or easy-to-replace single blade system. We look at how easily the blade extends and retracts. The blade storage also affects how well a utility knife ranks in our system.
For chisels, we take into account steel hardness and the overall design of the tool. From “demo” chisels to fine woodworking and carpentry chisels you want to understand the intended use and advantages of each of these tools.
