Picked up some old chisels.

They are 4 Riverside brand and two Stanley with the leather and metal in the handle. The Riverside handles are missing or banged up all but for one.

Are Riverside chisels very good?

Is that an 1/8” Everlast? lol

If so, that one typically carries a pretty high value on it.

I have no idea on the Riversides. But the Stanleys are desirable.

Don’t know about Riverside. Those Stanley’s are horrible though. They can cause death. You should ship them to me ASAP so I can properly dispose of them for you.

Nice haul. Work a couple of the Riversides up and give ‘em a good “chop the hell outta some really hard wood” test and see how the edge holds up. And let us know when you get done. There are sooooo many old chisels out in the wild. It’s nice to know which ones are worth picking up as users!

I have never used riverside but been told they are very good, just do not carry much value as they are not known.

If that is an 1/8” Stanley, I’d be willing to pay 30.00 for it, if you were willing to part with it.

Have your say...
