I’ve read about these and know they have a very good reputation. Not having the cash or desire to pay blue spruce or veritas prices I couldn’t resist these that were shipped to me for $27! I turned Ipe handles and added screw on copper plumbing fittings as ferrules (filed down on the lathe). The blades are nice and light, take a very fine edge and cut wonderfully. I see why people call these lifetime chisels. Erik Anton Berg made chisels in Sweden in the early 50s. Many came home with soldiers after WWII. I wish I knew the history on these two specifically. My guess is they are 60 years old, but the length indicates they were not used much. 1/2 and 1/4 inch widths. I probably keep my eye out for a few more sizes.
