I have been hearing the older cast steel tools (thanks to Mel) will hold their edge quite nicely. I have been looking for a good set of paring chisels. Maybe you can help with a few questions that I have:
1. On older chisels, did they call them paring chisels or just plain chisels?
2. Is it difficult to take an older chisel and bring it down to a 20 degree bevel? I do have ceramic stones and a grinder but not sure of the cast steel chisels will hold a minimal bevel like 20 degrees?
3. Besides general flea markets, are there places in North Carolina where I will have greater success in looking at cast steel chisels? I live between Raleigh and Greensboro.
