I've never used a Butt Chisel before, but am interested in some. I was thinking about some from Czeck Edge

Are there any other good Butt Chisels around?
Cheers!

I just looked at the Lee Valley butt chisels You have ordered
I think they are made in Japan by a company called Kakuri

Yep, when I saw they were made in Japan I figured they were very good+ quality.
The bevels are fairly steep & will need tapered for dovetails I think but maybe they will be fine as they are.

Conversely, I would like to try the LN long handle dovetail chisels which I think would be great for paring once you get to that point in the process.

Ron,

There's a rumor afloat that LN is going to be making some paring chisels. They're typically longer and more flexible. If you just want a longer tool, you might consider just buying a couple of the longer handles for the chisels. It takes just a second or two to switch them. Check out the Blue Spruce paring chisels at www.bluesprucetoolworks.com - Long Paring Chisels
Very nice. If you're going to be doing half blinds then you might also want to check out the LN fishtail chisels at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks USA | Fishtail Chisels as well.

Mike

I've been looking at the Ashley Iles Mk. 2 Butt Chisels. They look nice

He also makes a set of dovetails chisels, which includes 2 fishtails. Very nice

Cheers!

My tools for the job, including my Lie Nielsen saw, Knew Concepts saw (fantastic saw!) and my patented dovetail marking pencil

Nice Pencil! I like to do tails first, too, but I use a Czech Edge marking knife. I just got a set of Glen-Drake kerf starters, so I may use them to mark the pins.
