This chisel was made by Greaves in Sheffield. It has a very nice boxwood handle and good blade. It's under 1/8in and over 1 1/6th.. I'd guess 1/10in without a micrometer handy. It's good and usable, if a bit on the short side.

Interesting, Early Socket Gouge.
This gouge was made by Horton & Arnold, am edge tool manufacturer working in New York from 1853-1865 according to the EAIA DAT. The gouge is 1 1/2in wide, incannell, and a massive 17in long. The socket is slightly cranked like a slick's would be, which elevates the handle, and the user's hand, above the work. It has the look of a hand-forged edge tool to me- definitely mass-produced. The back is amazingly clean and free of pitting. The handle may not be original but fits well and has little wear at the receiving end. It's an interesting, early American edge tool that looks completely usable to me.
