Hi all

I bought a second hand chisel today, and would very much like to know a bit about its history. It is marked "C.I. Skelton & Co", with what looks like a unicorn emblem. it also has "sheffield" stamped on it, and the word "read" next to the unicorn. on the other side of the blade it is stamped "warranted cast steel".

i have not come across this make in south africa before. i bought it for the equivalent of 1 pound.

thanks for taking a look!

Vaughn,

I just googled Skelton .co. Sheffield. and came up with many results, among them were references to a factory in the 1940s produducing garden tools and woodworking tools.
