•Wood Working Chisels :- The range of Wood Working Chisels is quite unique. Usually the Wood Working Chisels can be categorized on the basis of their sizes. Slick is one of the Wood Working Chisel that is used in the making of timber frame and wood ship-building. In a Wood-carving process usually one starts with a larger Chisel and advances towards small Chisels for the finishing purpose. Some of the Wood Working Chisels are :

•Butt Chisel :- A Butt Chisel is used to make joints. A Butt Chisel has slanted sides and a straight edge.

•Carving Chisels :- A Carving Chisels is used for elaborated designs and sculpting. The cutting edges of Carving Chisels are gouge, skew, straight etc.

•Corner Chisel :- A Corner Chisel is used for cleaning mortises and square holes. The cutting edge of a Corner Chisel is usually L-shaped.

•Flooring Chisels :- The Flooring Chisels are used for cutting and lifting the flooring materials.

•Framing Chisels :- A Framing Chisel is similar to the Butt Chisel, the only difference being that a Framing Chisel has longer and somewhat flexible blades.

•Metal Working Chisels :- A Metal Working Chisel is used in various applications related to the metal work. Metal Working Chisels can be divided into two categories :

•Hot Metal Working Chisel :- A Hot Metal Working Chisel finds usage in cutting the slacken metals.

•Cold Metal Working Chisel :- Tempered steel is used in making the Cold Chisel. Cold Metal Working Chisels are available in a vast spectrum of different sizes.

•Stone Chisels :- The Stone Chisels finds usage in carving of stones, bricks and similar materials. Stone Chisels are hit with stronger hammers, to increase its effect.

•Masonry Chisels :- A Masonry Chisel is also known as a demolition tool. The Masonry Chisel is often ascended on a hammered-drill.

Some times it is hard to ask the right question, and it can lead to the wrong answers. I am guessing you were asking about hand carving tools? A simple way to learn about these is to view the tools available from sources like Rockler and Woodcraft. The stores are happy to answer specific questions and even give you a short lesson on how to use them. I like Flexcut tools and own several.
