3 1/2 James Swan Slick Carpenter / Timber Framer SlickSlicks are basically large chisels and oftentimes large framing chisels are mis-identified as slicks.  In general they can range in width from 2" up 6" or so with those large examples being very hard to find.  Most are socket style, but there are also tang slicks that can be found.  Occasionally a gouge style slick turns up, and even less often crank neck ones appear.  Names like Wilkinson, Barton, L. & I.  J. White, Witherby, James Swan and more come to mind as the premier makers of the 19th century.
