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.
