263941 Pier-Rick Lamontagne <foutchibay@g...> 2017‑11‑14 Protuberance on chisel (upper ferrule)
Hi Great Galoots,

I received a Narex chisel set last week and been working with since, I
found out that I don't like the "bump" over the upper ferrule. Since I use
a lot the palm of my hand, the pressure push in a specific place and it
tend to hurt after a while.

I've read a Paul Seller blog about a cheap chisel set where he removed the
ferrule and use the chisel without it.
I only have a wooden mallet, no hard iron hammer or even a soft face mallet.

What do you think about this process? Would it broke the chisel handle
after a while? (I don't want to change the handle too soon).
