Outstanding Buck Brothers 1/8in Tang Paring Gouge.
This gouge is in great shape and in perfectly usable condition. It's 12in long with a very thin, flexible blade. The back of the blade has zero pitting. The handle is just beautiful. It's a fine paring gouge never intended for use with a mallet. A top quality American edge tool made in Milbury, MA. You won't find this sort of gouge made by any modern maker.

Buck Brothers 1/4in Patternmakers Cranked Paring Gouge.
This is a near-perfect example in top condition. It is nearly 14in long overall. The blade is perfectly clean, as is the handle. It has an incannell bevel for paring work. Typically used by patternmakers, these cranked paring gouges are still very useful and hard to find in this condition. Buck offered these in three sweeps- This example is a "medium" sweep.

Stout 3/4in Socket Chisel.
This chisel has a thick blade and looks quite early. The socket is clearly forge-welded. There is a partial maker's mark but all I can read is "& Son" for certain. The blade has some discoloration but the area near the bevel is lapped clean and flat. The handle is in great shape but certainly not original A good worker for tough jobs.

Massive Wm. Marples 1/2in Socket Mortise Chisel.
This chisel is 14+in long, made in Sheffield by William Marples. It's seen a lot of use but remains in good, usable condition. The blade back is clean and free of pitting. The handle has some checks towards the socket but it looks plenty stable to me. The handle is hooped to absorb mallet blows. A sturdy worker in a useful size.

Thick Marples 3/16in Socket Mortise Chisel.
This chisel is clean, sharp, and ready to work. It's 13in long and has a stout, laminated blade. There is a crack or seam in the tool steel 3in back of the bevel, but it does not extend to the softer top layer so I think it's fine to use. The handle is perfect. An imperfect chisel, but usable.
