As a consolation, today I pulled out my own small collection of Swedish (and other) chisels. I got all of these chisels either from Jonas or his dad.
|Gee, there's more of these than I thought! Do they replicate, or what?|
|Ever see one of these?|
|Finnish chisel. This one is about 3/8".|
|J. Jowett of Sheffield.|
|One still had a legible label on the handle.|
|Iconic red plastic handle.|
|I have three of these, a 1", a 3/4", and a 3/8".|
|Eskilstuna is synonymous with good tool steel.|
|Two unmarked mortice chisels. 3/16" and 1/4"|
Once I lined them all up, I realized this is a fairly decent set of user chisels. Although they don't all match, I have pretty much all I need.
|3/16, 1/4+, 3/8, 3/8, 1/2+, 3/4, 3/4, 1, 1-1/4 chisels, 1/4 mortice, and 5/16 and 1 inch gouges.|
|If all the handles were the same, I wouldn't be able to tell one from the other!|
