Cabin update: This slick (type of chisel used for timber framing and working with logs) I recently bought is 2' long and 2" wide. It's not pitted near the blade. Hopefully, with a file and stone, I'll be able to get it sharp enough to shave with!
Forget a file -- I picked up a set of 3 (600/1000/3000g) waterstones and a jig.
Now, I need a cant hook.
