Hi,
I'm new to this forum but based on previous reading of it, I'm thinking someone out there may be able to answer my questions.

I've come acrsoss three chisels marked "I Janport I" or "I I Janport" on both a decal on the handles and stamped in a rectangle with "Sweden" into the back of the blade. They appear to be a quality product, are in good shape, and the handles are protected by a metal ring at their "mallet" end.

Can anyone tell me anything at all about them--their quality (compared to Berg or others), approximate age, etc.

I've searched a good number of posts, some specifically about Swedish steel and Swedish chisels, but nowhere is the name Janport mentioned, with the exception of a post on this site by kygaloot, 12/21/2011.

Thanks much for any info.

Martin
