    I have got my sweet hearts 😉
    Horn beam handles feel loverly in hand, chisels blades quite finely ground and flat.
    I hope not have to work to hard to get backs flat.

    Mark-

    Could you please post a closeup picture of the beveled edges of one of your chisels? I am looking for a 1/8″ chisel, and was thinking of buying one of the Stanley 750’s, but I have never seen a closeup picture of the beveled edges.

    Thanks much,

    To be honest the 1/8″ chisel has only a very very slight bevel.
    The other chisels I was hoping the bevel would have come down to the back a little more probably 2 mm to 2.5 mm from back of chisel
    I have sharpened Chisel with scary sharpening method they are like razors. Honed to 0.3 micron.

    Yeah I use scary sharp also. Mark do you feel they will be fine enough for dovetails?

    I think they should be ok. As they are not a lot different to other chisels.
    If it comes to it I will extend bevel to make nearer to back.Not that hard to do just a bit of time.
    Have some old Stanleys and Marples chisel down to about 1 mm from back also Narex chisels as from new.
