Default Marples and Woodcraft UK Mortise and Butt Chisels

Colleagues: recently found these chisels in an unopened and stored box that I packed for an interstate move back in 2000. Since I have not missed or utilized them in 15+ years, it is time they find a new home. Do believe that I never used either set. They appear to be new.

MARPLES UK double loop mortise chisels with leather shock absorber on lower loop. 1", 3/4", 5/8", and 1/2". Overall length
11 3/4": blades 5 5/8", handles 6 1/8". These are substantial chisels for heavy duty work. Marples, UK made, Sheffield steel.

US$65.00 +$12.50 medium box US Priority mail shipping.

Woodcraft UK butt chisels, 1", 7/8", 3/4", 5/8", 1/2", 3/8" and 1/4". Overall length approx. 5 3/4": 3 3/8" blade, 2 1/2" handles. Box label claims rosewood handles, made by Crown Tools, UK. Sheffield steel.

US$55.00 + $12.50 US Priority Mail shipping.

If you want both sets, will adjust price.

First response to this thread indicating "I'll take it", gets it.

As a result of prior issues, will only ship to continental US and will only accept US Post office Money Orders.

Chisels arrived yesterday--very well packaged. While the butt chisels were exactly as described, and the Marples were a most pleasant surprise. Beautiful stuff, sharper than my razor and i could use the tips as a very small shaving mirror!! That 1" Marple will make a SERIOUS mortise one day--as soon as i figure out a big enough project!!

Thanks Ray!!

Earl: good to hear that the chisels arrived OK.

As for the "razor edge", I am partial to sharpening with water stones and do think the water stone gives a sharper edge.

Hope the chisels provide you with many years of enjoyable woodworking....
