I have the 6 pc. set of these from The Best Things:
http://www.thebestthings.com/newtools/japanese_bench_chisels.htm

Only used a handful of times. They are very nice chisels, but I find I am doing more paring work than chopping, and these are designed to be used with a mallet (or steel hammer). Since these are pretty much the only nice set of chisels I own at my bench, I’m hoping to sell them and get a set of Blue Spruce bench chisels.

Retails for $339. I’d like to get $250, plus I’ll throw in a custom made Walnut holder for them.

Thanks!

Ben, going from $339 to ~$85 is quite a gap. You sure you want to do that?

I’ll take more if you’re offering…
I wasn’t sure what the demand for something like this would be and was erring on the side of offering a sweet deal. If I put them on the Bay, maybe I could squeeze a few more bucks out of it. But it’s a hassle.

So did you really sell them for $85?

No! Not sure where this confusion came from. I am asking $250, a savings of $89 over retail.
