Kindly,

A little more honesty is not possible. However, what make are they and will you ship to the Netherlands?

I don’t know the make, but I did add a line about the country of Origin: Shanghai, China. Ship to Netherlands, of course, but that would require more than the $11 I’m suggesting for the US. It’s nice to hear the universality of the need and desire for shop decor.

Kindly,

Lee

I have seen those markings before. They aren’t the cheapest chineese chisels, but I can’t tell if those are Japanese or Chineese, cause I don’t read those languages. The markings weren’t on a chineese set of chisels though, they were Japanese. But I can’t tell for a fact so I may just be blowing wind.

I was so intrigued by the description that I almost missed the chisels;) I like the use of “decor”, lol.

If you don’t get any takers, you could re auction them as heavy duty tent pegs…

That’s so good it deserves to go viral.

Keep us posted about any bids.

um, I take it that you didn’t like them? Well if all else fails I could weld them into some piece of art for you. GREAT Ebay Ad I hope someone has the humor to buy them. Good luck.

7:50 am Pacific Time, Wednesday morning: Chisel set has 166 views in one day. For contrast, my Swan 1 3/4” chisel has been up for two weeks. It didn’t sell the first week and has had 21 views the second week with a little over an hour left in the auction.

No bids though. I love the suspense; it’s like a watching a large piece of heavy equipment, not moving.

And I have the tent peg fallback option. Life is good.

Kindly,

Lee
