Spear and Jackson paring chisel

I won this 7/8" wide Spear and Jackson paring chisel on eBay and it just arrived.


.  It is 3/16" thick at the top of the blade, 7 1/2" tip to the bolster and has an oak handle.
The Spear and Jackson logo, complete with crown, is in clear and readable shape, as is the cast steel logo.

I need to flatten the back, regrind and hone the bevel, then replace the cracked handle.  I'll make a traditional 18th century octagonal handle as I think this is the most comfortable style of handle.  I'll post pics when its done.

  1. Sweet. Is the handle original, can it be saved?
