These are fantastic carving chisels. For sale is a nice set of 9, D. R. Barton Carving chisels. There are 6 spoon fishtail gouges and 3 spoon gouges.

These chisels are in great user shape. They are awesome antiques, but more than that, these are just really good carving chisels. They are a great set, and these are interesting shapes that hard to find made today. They are sharpened, and Ready to work… The only problem would be on one of the gouges, there is a chip from the handle. Otherwise, they are awesome. Hand forged, Made in America.

D.R. Barton was one of the first, and best tool makers in the United States, starting his business in Rochester, NY, in 1832. These chisels were made sometime between 1832-1860. You can read more on the fine tool wiki page. But Barton chisels are the real deal.. a man named T.H. Whitherby worked for Barton, then left and started his own company, and it one of the best american made chisel makers… Tons of history here.

Asking $280 for these cleaned, restored, sharpened, and ready to use vintage carving chisels.

I forgot to mention, the $280 price includes shipping to USA. Also, the set of 3 gouges are actually “bent” gouges. I had the terminology wrong on them.

PM me if interested, thanks all.
