chisel (noun) a carpenter's or a sculptor's tool

A chisel is a sharp-edged hand tool, with a flat edge for cutting, shaping wood, stone, metal, etc.. The chisel is the main, and among the commonest tools used along with the hammer by the carpenter or the sculptor to shape things out of wood, stone, or metal. The chisel is used to chip, engrave, or shape things from wood, metal, or stone.

  • The famous Italian sculptors of the Renaissance Italy used their chisels to splendid effect; their sculptures are the marvelous products of their imagination and their deft use of the chisel.
  • The chisel is to the sculptor, what the pen is to the poet. If the poet uses the pen to make pictures of words, the sculptor uses the chisel to make his figures speak.
