I think the “Marple’s” chisels represent a fair value in “user” type chisels. They sharpen well, stay sharp and are relatively “Cheap”, I just don’t like the plastic handles on them. They are harder to get off than I imagined. The easiest way was to turn them off on the lathe. I also applied some heat sink gel on one of them and “Torched” it off. Here is the end result of my efforts of rehandling these old bench chisels. Maybe I will “Reach” for them a little more now…
