3D Printed Chisel

Whilst writing my proposal a few months ago I decided I would try and 3D print some tools that I might need.  I wanted to test how durable and feasible it would be to direct laser sinter in steel.  This is my first piece made by sintered steel and the handle is a stick found in my allotment.  I put holes in the piece to take the cost down but made them hexagonal to hopefully keep some strength in the piece.  It cost about 20 euros to print and the end result is very sharp after I filed and polished the tip.
