Just as an aside, I wouldn't say I'm a big fan of my Marples. They're quite top heavy, and I actually drilled out a bunch of holes in the handle of my 1" to improve balance. And they are also in reality metric, not imperial. Which is not the system we use at work. And since I've been acquiring good quality antique chisels I've noticed that I'm not real impressed with the edge retention.
Just my two cents. JP
