I have unreasonable sentimentality about Stanley Model 40 chisels. I started buying them about 30 years ago just as they were being discontinued. They seem to sharpen easily and hold a good edge. I was always missing the one inch chisel and recently was lucky enough to find one on eBay.
Step 1: Beat up chisel handle
When I received it, I noticed that the back of the handle had been hit pretty hard over the years.
