One measures about a 16th under 8" along the upper edge, and the other measures about a 32nd under 10" along the upper edge. Both are marked with the decal that reads "MARPLES & SONS SHEFFIELD ENG SHAMROCK BRAND" on one side of the handle, and both are marked with "MARPLES & SONS SHEFFIELD ENG" stamped into the wood on the other side of the handle. Both feature 4 diamond shaped escutcheons on each side of the handle, plus the brass trim on each side of the bottom of the handle. Condition of both is very good. Both blades have a light blued finish, but the 10 has lost some of the blueing from a cleaning.
Both blades have a variety of scratches, but both have only a hint of rust with no pitting. The 8" is straight, while the 10" has a slight S shape if you sight down the upper edge.
The winner gets both squares! I sell what I enjoy, and I collect antique woodworking tools and I enjoy photography!The queue is overflowing with tools right now, as they seem to be finding me faster than I can list them. So please keep watching my postings as I have LOTS more to list!
Searching my listings: I have lots to see! That will lead you to my extensive system of categories. You might ask: How can I know when you start new listings?
Descriptions, and auctions with pictures only of the left side because the right side was trashed. I come from the handshake school of doing business, and hopefully you are like me and understand what that means. What goes around, comes around.However, that doesn't mean that I won't make an occasional mistake. Please don't ask, the answer is no. I package well, and have a great track record. I use the US Post Office for everything. Every year the US Postal Service raises rates in mid to late January, and this year is no exception. So I wont do that for you, or to you. PACKAGING: Please check my feedback -- I package well. I hope someday I will meet some of you as we trudge the happy road of tool collecting!
