Product Review Product Review

Just got my new chisel and I must say its hands down my new favorite. It measures a healthy 12/1/2 inches long and resembels a railroad spike on steroids. The hard cap is an easy target at almost 2" in diameter and the 5" cushion length is more than enough for big hands like mine to hold onto. Definately an investment tool this is a ridiculous bargian for the serious rockhounder looking to add some professional gear to their arsenal.
