Marples?
Real Marples?
Not real Marples?
It doesn’t matter.
I use brand names sometimes to identify what I’m talking about, but I have to tell you, most of the time brand names don’t mean too much. While it may be true that some brands may be better than others (don’t know about Marples, my chisels are el-cheapos that don’t even have names on them), even some of the lesser brands have some products that shine. Guys who will only use certain brands are what I call “tool snobs”. If a tool works, it doesn’t matter what brand name is on it.
Also, it’s a father’s day gift. If you’re happy with them, then the gifter accomplished what they wanted.
