Thank you for your response Joshua. I have a set of bench chisels, a L-N dovetail chisel, and am now looking to purchase two additional chisels (a mortising chisel and a paring chisel) to complete my set. I have read your recommendation for mortising chisels as well as the reviews by the two authors which seemed highly favorable toward the new “Sticker” style mortising chisels sold by Tools for Working Wood. So that I can better understand your response, are you recommending purchasing an antique chisel of this type as opposed to a new one?
Thank you again for your help.
