Very happy man this evening! I've been thinking about getting a set of flex-cut chisels all year and managed to pick up a small lot of carving bits today for less than the cost of the set!
A few questions about bits
-Can anyone tell me what chisel the single Ashley iles one is called or used for, its very thin and fragile feeling.
-Does anyone recognise the handle of the unmarked one? I can't quite read the stamp on the steel and it seems very nice to be unbranded
-Does record, or anyone else, sell a replacement arm for the vice without buying a whole new kit?

Thank you for any help!

Thank you @Doug B I will check that link now, i did have a look around for it but couldn't find anything the first try.
As for the arm, having looked around it seems the clamp/vice is missing an arm with a faceplate for holding the workpiece

Don't forget that sometimes people take a chisel and grind it into a new shape/profile to suit their needs.

I did consider this but having a good look its far to clean, it would have taken some serious work if thats the case!
