Huge, Early British Pigsitcker Mortise Chisel.
This is one of the biggest mortise chisels I've seen of the type. It's 13+in long and weighs in at around two pounds. Almost all of that weight is in the massive, laminated blade. It was made by James Cam in Sheffield, an early and important maker of woodworking edge tools. This example has a handle with a more shapely design than most. It's in excellent condition and could be used if you have some big mortises to cut. An outstanding chisel in every way.
