Hi Matt,

Hand made Japanese chisels can be very expensive, but he doesn't give much info. to justify what he is seeking for them, IMO. He seems to have made a pig's ear of sharpening them, too. :roll: :roll:

They look to have been pretty well abused to me.

:shock: Thinking of bidding, are you? :lol:

Cheers,

Trev.

Yeah, i was thinking that too.

Hmmmmmm, think i'll give that one a miss. About as much chance of me spending 10 grand on a plane :lol:

Matt.

Just had another look at the chisel seller. From his feedback, he appears only to have sold one item previously, and the buyer was not over the moon with that transaction!

Cheers,

Trev.

Fancy damascus steel bashing - they are expensive anywhere, but he's aiming for a very near retail price.

Heh. "Finest makers in Japan", and yet he doesn't name them...

Rust all over the sockets...

The bevel looks steep, and looks suspiciously as if it might be "double bevel", which is not correct for Japanese practise.
