I'm working on sharpening a chisel recently bought a flea market to be used as a paring chisel. While flattening the back, I discovered the back edge of the chisel had a bevel about 1/16" wide.
This would mean that I'd have to raise the chisel to get any cutting action, which seems to violate the use for paring/shaving.
I've attached some pictures below and would appreciate advice and counsel on how to proceed.
