L & I J WHITE woodworking chisel slick 3'' wide blade 26'' Long vintage framing tool. White was established by two brothers, Leonard and Ichabod Jewett White. Their father, Samuel White, was born in North Coventry, Connecticut and moved to Buffalo, NY in 1837. In the same year Leonard and Ichabod moved from North Coventry to Monroe, Michigan and established edge tool shop there. We don't know for sure what kind of tools Whites produced.
We can assume however that they offered usual repertoire of basic edge tools. Tools with Monroe marking are very rare. We know that one documented drawknife with marking "L & I J White, Monroe" exist. Another tool they made was axes. This is documented in a letter written by Brothers to the State Governor, William H.The original of this letter is in the Burton Historical Collection at the Detroit Public Library. A nice heavy duty timber framers, barn builders, or shipbuilders slick.
Minor spots of pitting as seen. Slicks 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. White, Witherby, James Swan and more come to mind as the premier makers of the 19th century.
