The plastic tubing is what I've been using on a bunch of my chisels and gouges for about 5 years now. Comes in lots of sizes and is cheap. You squeeze it flat a bit and then slip it on and it stays in place when the tubing tries to go round again. Plus you can see what the tip looks like in the case of gouges.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

50+ years ago when doing lineman's work I was looking for a way to keep my climbing spurs sharp and safe. I found some thick wall Tygon plastic tubing to use on them in a way similar to the chisel protectors in the first link. Because of the shape of the spurs it was necessary to cut one end of each piece of the tubing at about a 70 deg angle to get them to completely cover the spur, and it was quite successful. Those spurs are still hanging in my garage with those plastic tubing protection covers on them. I'm certain that I'll never use them again, but I can't seem to accept getting rid of them. The leather lineman's belt is still there too, again for the same reason.
