    Fred, I am glad to hear you liked them. I probably would not have bought mine for myself either, but mine were a significant upgrade over the Stanley hardware store chisels I had. Sounds like your Marples are a pretty good chisel in their own right.

    Those UK made Marples were generally regarded as pretty good tools... The only complaint I heard was some people wishing they were a bit harder and the occasional report of an un-hardened chisel ending up in someone's hands...

    Try Japanese chisels...good white steel chisels.

    Those will blow away your cheap chisels by a big margin IMHO
