Last I heard I think Rob said the O1 versions around Christmas - but not in time for them to be under the tree. Can't remember whether he specified which year though... :-k :lol: I blame the caramalised maple handles; production probably keeps stopping while the LV elves have to go and attend to their maple syrup cravings.

At least RL's elves are in the right part of the world for maple surple - Rob

Does "don't run with scissors" also apply to chisels?

Oh spherical objects. I withdraw the "what year" witticism as no longer being funny then. (Arguably it never was funny...) Seems to be a necessity with chisels that their birth is a long and protracted affair, which never fails to intrigue me for what is widely considered such a "simple" tool. Still, if Guinness advertising has taught me nothing else, it's that good things come to those who wait. (Also that tick follows tock, and toucans have a surprising affiliation with Irish stout....)

Hi Alf!

I, too, have used the "what year" when asking about delivery dates.... #-o

Chisels require a bit of extra testing - as they're likely to be beaten, and used as a pry (not just paint can lids!)...

Just being careful is all....

Cheers -

Rob

Do please keep us posted on the release date Rob, as I am close by ( in Canuck terms that is ) , and may just get a review in before the rest of the faithful do. This would be a major achievement for me . My wife has just let me get back to the shop after my stay in Guelph Hospital and shiny new Lee Valley goodies would make a great way to return to it. And since she is feeling so mellow towards me at the moment , well it seems a good time to try for them.

Cannot afford that one either. On the poverty scale I have to have a great month to be considered destitute. With apologies to Rob . I picked that one as it was in the provided batch of pics and I am a bit of a slothful type sinner.

No apologies necessary... that's a good tool too!
