I’m much more fond of socket chisels than tang. For some reason, drilling a straight hole in a handle escapes my grasp. LOL

I have grown kind of partial to chisels made by D R Barton. They were made in my home town from 1832 to the early 1900’s. They aren’t too difficult to find for a tool that age. I have a couple of old Witherbys and they are nice, but my long term goal is to end up with a complete set of D R Bartons. Mainly just for the challenge of it.
