* Paring chisels are for light-duty, detailed work such as trimming cabinets.
To get around this, most woodworkers find it useful to have two sets of chisels: paring chisels with a primary bevel of 20 degrees to 25 degrees for cutting parallel and across the grain, and thicker-bladed mortising chisels with steeper bevel angles of 30 degrees to 35 degrees for end grain cuts.
I like a hollow ground bevel on my paring chisels, but on plane irons and mortise chisels I hone the bevel flat on a coarse whetstone after grinding it to rough shape.
