I presume you meant RESHARPEN not reshapen.
How can we help you with what you need to know?

Yes resharpen, I think I will use a file and a vise to sharpen them. I am not that great sharpening a knife on a wet stone. I also might look it up on youtube.

also I really dont want to sell them, I will keep you in mind if I come across more deals.

Please don’t do that… I can tell you an idiot-proof and inexpensive way to sharpen if you want, even a drunken lout like me can do it.

Ditto what he said. All you will do with a file is ruin them.

Just google Chisel Sharpening and read on.

Nice chisel set. Looks an easy rehab project…...unless you use a file to sharpen them. Then you’ll ruin them.
Get a granite tile from Home depot and some sandpaper and a cheap jig. Google “scary sharp” for more information.
