Ashley Iles Cabinetmakers Fishtail Skew

Combining the benefits of fishtail chisels and skew chisels, and eliminating the need for both, fishtail skews are wonderful tools for reaching deep into the recesses of fine joinery to trim away any remaining fluff and ensure a tight fit and professional finish.

The unusual width of the 7/16" fishtail skews was the result of a trial and error process and is based on nothing more scientific than a general agreement that 'that one just feels absolutely spot on'. I hope that like me you will find yourself reaching for these little beauties all the time.

The 1/4" fishtail skews make a superb addition to the Ashley Iles Dovetail chisel set.
