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.

Will do Ken might be some time as work gets in the way.
Forgot to mention the chisel roll quit nice as well.

Looking forward to thoughts on them.
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.

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.

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.
