High-quality, heat-treated steel chisel, 1/2” shaft, made in the U.S.A.
Custom-ground radius and point.
The Butterknife is used to remove fixed heads and deadheads. Tap the point of the Butterknife into a fixed blob of copper or aluminum, such that the point has a good bite, and then tap the side of the end of the Butterknife towards the rock, to use leverage to pry out the blob, with the radius of the Butterknife acting as the fulcrum. The Butterknife can also be used as a chisel, to scrape out any remaining bits of metal from a clogged placement. Once all of the metal has been removed, using a wire brush and a blowtube to finish the cleaning process is recommended, before placing a new head.
