I’ve got a few of the exact same chisels - Stanley No. 60s - as well as some
plastic handled Buck Bros. No. 100s, complete with paint specks and protected by
much less elegant blue tape and Plasti-Dip. They were my dad’s, so they’re more
than 60 years old. I can bang the hell out of them (as I’m sure my dad did) and
they keep coming back for more. Since discovering and utilizing the Unicorn
method of sharpening, they perform every bit as good as my set of LN chisels. So
much for all the gobbledygook about modern steels.
