While having my morning coffee and doing a little mindless browsing before putting on the monkey suit and strapping a Sim to my butt for the 8th day in a row…..Oh poor me. OK the morning kevtch is out of the way on to the chase.

I ran across the blog of G.S.Hayden , it was interesting enough to bookmark. He made a statement on a post about chisels, which one he would save in case of a disaster, that rang very true to me. That statement was: ”...And for the record I think the Ashley Iles Mk 2 is the best value fine bench chisel available today…”. I agree, you can find good chisels both cheaper and more expensive but the Ashley Iles' hit the sweet spot of quality and price. They have great balance and very good high carbon steel with thin blades. Just a great bench chisel at any price point.
