The Hultafors STK Chisel Knife is a handy chisel knife for carpenters. The Hultafors Chisel is the ideal tool for many tasks, from sharpening a new tip on your carpenter's pencil to clearing out a small recess for a hinge. Usually you don't have normal chisels in the pocket of your overalls. But you can hang the sheath of this chisel knife on your overalls so that you always have it close at hand. Perfect!
The blade is made from Japanese carbon steel. This is a sturdy steel that is easy to sharpen. It isn't stainless, though, so take care around moisture and acids. Contrary to what you might expect from a chisel, the Hultafors Chisel Knife is sharpened on both sides of the blade. However, the grind is very thin so the chisel is delivered very sharp. The handle is made from polypropylene. This is a durable plastic that will last for years and years.
The knife comes with a handy sheath so you can carry it on a belt up to 4 cm wide. You can also hang it from a button on your overalls. To do this, unclip the belt loop, slide the button in and then click it into place. Very practical!

This a well made knife with a specific purpose, I have not used this a great deal but one thing I was disappointed about is that it is not a chisel point. The end is chamfered on both sides to form an edge in the middle of the knife blade. I understand that with an edge on the side you can't have a chisel end. I suppose that I didn't expect the sharp edge on the side.
