I picked up a couple of chisels at a tool sale and I can't figure out
who the manufacturer was. There was a logo on the handles, but they are
beat up so badly I can't make out any details. These photos show all
the markings on the body and handles:
"Our beer goes through thousands of quality Czechs every day."

No, can't help. I _know_ I have seen that makers stamp before (the S-
shaped diving [whale]), I believe on a high quality kitchen knife, but I
can't name the manufacturer. I had a bit of a look around German online
tool sellers to see if I could find it, but it didn't show up.
Bahco uses a fish stamp, but 1. it's a different shape and 2. they're
Swedish as far as I can recall.
Just googled Germany+Tools+Whale and came up with a Sheffield forum
discussing knives. Mention made of a knife marked "Germany" with a
whale logo. Perhaps it might be Richartz Bros of Solingen.
Link to forum below. Maybe they can help : )
