Do you guys/gals think this set is worth 350.00? It includes Stanley, Buck Brothers, Witherby, etc., the case is walnut I believe. All the tools are clean and no rust, ready for work or collection. Let me know what you guys think.

Not outrageous. $300 would be nicer, but that’s just me.

If its good quality steel, they’re worth $350. You’d spend a boatload more than that on a comparable set of new higher end chisels.

Hello Jon, the steel is good quality and they hold a nice edge. Each chisel has it’s own slot in the bottom section to hold it in place in the case. I appreciate all the input, thank you all.

If the box is well made walnut it’s worth 100.00 at least. To me seems like a good buy.

Hello punkin, thanks for your help. The box is well constructed, no dovetails for joinery, but constructed out of 3/4” stock and well thought out. The handle is made of walnut also, because of age, it is unclear whether the wood is walnut or cherry. To ship this set would be a problem, it weighs in at 35 pounds and the size of the case is, 26×17 x 5”.

Hello Hammer, they belong to me, part of my collection. Just wanted to see if the general consensus was the same on the price. Sorry for any confusion.

Hello Cyber, here’s a couple shots of the bottom half of the case. The slots are cut so the chisels fit in the case and don’t move around when carried or put away.
