Pro Tip
The chisel tip is designed in such a way to increase ease of separating shingles, etc., which resulted in making the chisel end very sharp.  Manufacturer recommends dulling the chisel end (scrape chisel end along rough surface such as concrete, etc) to avoid injury to self, equipment, etc.
Please use with care.
