Should I get a refund on these chisels?

I bought three new_old_stock Buck Bros. bench chisels ('60's) just to have a few in the largest sizes, from http://www.craftsmanstudio.com /, these are hardened to RC 59.
The blade was sharpened and back-lapped from 220-320-600-1200 papers for both sides, strictly by hand because my basic honing guide does not hold thick blades, I know I did it accurately though.
I cleaned up tenon cheeks (meaning not the tenons themselves), the end-flats around the tenons that is, the wood is doug fir. I used the 2" Buck and a 26mm Stubai bench chisel.
But when in use, the Buck took on some nick-burs to the point where it needs a complete new honing after only [one_session_of_many_strokes] with a mallet!!! These burs are sharp enought to feel.
The Stubai chisel was used on the same job for a bit more time than the Buck with some equally hard slamming and it took on no nick-burs in the cutting edge, these are hardened to RC 60. Superior steel from Austria?
I can tell the Buck steel is decent, as it leaves a non gummy medium grey powder on the paper, the Stubai leaves a non gummy, very light colored grey powder (On yellow 220 AO from Norton).
Does anyone suspect I should get a refund on these Bucks? Pictures are on ABPW with the title " Buck Bros. Chisels " (for searching through the illegal mess). Thanks much for any advise but please take all factors of mine into account...?

This is precisely the type of question that one should ask of the manufacturer themselves and not a usenet newsgroup Alex. Bet you'll get a faster, more accurate answer there.
