Do you have a woodworking specialty store near you? If not, you may be stuck buying from the web.

I don’t know how well they will hold up, but I just got a “Buck Brothers” chisel from Home Depot to fill in a missing chisel size for my pieced together set of classic Stanley #60s. I thought it looked pretty close to the old Stanleys, but when I got it home I discovered two things. It was about 1” longer than the Stanleys and was pretty darn sharp right out of the package; better than my Wood River set from Woodcrafter. Then one last bit of shock; the Buck Brothers chisels are MADE IN THE USA. I’m not ready to recommend these chisels yet, not enough usage history, but I wish I had gotten a set of these instead of the Wood River “made in china” paint can openers.
