Found these on the Auction site the other day. (Good thing Stu wasn't looking.) I have a nice five chisel set but wanted a full 10 chisel set for a while. So I was thinking to buy new and then be assured I get what I want. Then I found these so I put a bid in. I admit I took a bit of a risk as I couldn't clearly determine the quality. But the seller said he bought them for 120,000 yen 13 years ago and never used them. And sure enough they haven't even been honed yet. My logic for bidding; there is no Japanese blacksmith that is worth his weight in gold that would charge that kind of price for sub quality and even at my top bid they were worth it. In U.S. bucks 120,000 is about a grand. I know you're thinking but good quality Japanese chisels are handmade and very nice. You all can relate to the handmade pricing thing I'm sure. Maybe you can't relate to Japanese chisels so I strongly recommend them. Anyways my preamble is leading up to I got them for 32,500 yen for nine chisels, about 300 bucks. They do not dissapoint.
