What is a scutching tool?
|Scutching tools (either a scutch chisel used in conjunction with a flat faced hammer or a scutch hammer on its own) are predominantly used for shaping bricks and stone to the desired shape and size (e.g. to make a wall).|
|They come in two forms: either a scutch hammer or a scutch chisel.|
|Scutch hammers and scutch chisels are the 'holders' for a scutch comb or drove. These are the replaceable cutting edges for the hammer and chisel.|
|Scutching tools are generally used within the masonry industry but can also be used for those interested in building their own wall or sculpture at home.|
