8 Stanley #720 Firmer Chisels8 Piece Set of Stanley #720 Firmer Chisels  Here is one of the nicest 8 piece sets of Stanley's  long 720 socket firmer chisels you will see in a long time.  The box is homemade and has served to protect the chisels from the ravages of the tool box..  The handles are all original, with one being a few shades lighter in color.  This is not a married up or assembled set, they were all found together as a set. All are marked Stanley & 720 the same way.

Some of the chisels have never been used, some show slight evidence of being struck once or twice.   None of the chisels has ever been honed and all of the bevels have the original factory grind.  The 3/4 and 1 1/4 show the most signs of use and should be honed before use.  Both are still fine at least.  There is no rust or pitting, and these did not even need to be cleaned.  They are original.    In his book / price guide John Walters doesn't mention a 2 inch size but here is one in mint condition.  A superb set of one of Stanley's finest chisels.  Very Nice!!.  

Excellent . . . . .$495.00        SOLD!

The 2 inch has never been hit. All have been honed by the previous owner. The condition of all is crisp and clean with no rust or pitting. The edges of s few of the smaller ones that were used have tiny flaking on the edge from use and just need to be re-honed. The box is original and shows some wear but is sound. The labels on inside indicating the sizes are 95% plus as is the purple background.  This set of chisels has seen little or no use, and will be a fine set for use or the collection.
