Slick surprise

I got a few more used chisels off of a Japanese auction site, and figured that for the cost ($200 for a dozen bench chisels and a pair of paring chisels), I wouldn't stand to lose much.

When the box came today, it was long and heavy and I thought the shape was odd for Japanese chisels. When I opened the box, I quickly saw what was up. The chisels in the picture are below a record 08. The pair of them must weigh several pounds, and they're about 21 inches long.

So much for paring anything with them.
