    Sorby Octagonal Bench Chisel Set

    I've got a like new set of Sorby Boxwood Handled bench chisels. I don't see many signs of sharpening and the backs will need flattened and bevel honed. Just a few hints of oxidation on a few of the chisels, these really are nice. This set costs over $425 but I could not find a US source for the sizes over 1". This set contains 1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" 3/4", 1", 1 1/4", 1 1/5" and 2". The 5 piece set does not include the 1/8" or the 1 1/4", 1 1/2" and 2" chisel, so this is a great one and done set for someone.

    I'd like $350 which includes insured shipping via USPS Priority Mail. Payment by check, money order or PayPal. Will ship to any US location to include territories, APO/FPO.

    Hi Peter
    are these metric equivalents or true imperial?

    Ralph,

    Using a micrometer, most measure within a few thousandths of their stated width. The 1" chisel measures .999"! I think they are imperial with metric equivalents.

    Offers before these go to Ebay or put back in the drawer?
