If you've read my other posts you will see that I'm new to woodworking. My company issued me with (among other things) a fleece for the cold weather, so I've been wearing it out in the garage while I make sawdust. One of the guys at work asked me what the h+ll I'd done to get my fleece in such a state, so I told him that I'd started doing a bit of wood work.

The next day the same guy gave me a brand new set of four Stanley chisels in a plastic box with an oil stone and oil. He reckoned I'd better have them because he would probably lose a finger using stuff like that! :D

Sounds like the new one they still produce, i've found that they do hold an edge very well and they are my everyday users, a delight to use too. So yeah, nice one!

any free tool is a bonus, particularly while you are starting out. I got a set of them myself; but, the stone was very curved - all experts on sharpening will say that this must be avoided. I flattened it on some sandpaper, probably a 100 grit and it worked fine.
