Default Nice Warren Tools

Hello Folks<br>
I have a friend ,a retired college professor, whose father was a
carpenter. His father dabbled in woodcarving and gave his tools to my
friend when he retired. As you can see it it is a complete set of
warren tools each individually handled with nice walnut. I believe
all&nbsp; the individual bits in the warren catalog are represented
here.<br>
Thought you guys might like seeing some nice workmanship. Quite a treasure to recieve from one's father.<br>
Enjoy!!!<br>
<br>

buckbeans,

nice collection,
if you didnt know, warren makes a line of replacement blades for there sets, kinda like exact-o but heavier made,
rick was telling me once of a feller who use to take the warren replacement blades set them into handles for 35 bucks or so each,
i have did so myself and have 15 or so in my collection,

there is quite a viriaty of blade shapes and the blades are fairly good to carve with once you have the double bevel sharpened away, they hone up nicely,

buckbeans,
what a lovely set of tools they turned into with those handles.... Warrens have always been a good little tool. Their V tool is a favorite of mine. They are not expensive and they hold an edge. But these are now customized into something really special.

I have always wondered why Warren doesn't make some larger tools? They would be great.

I'm now the owner of those Warren tools with the handmade handles and am thinking of selling them, as no one in the family seems interested in keeping them. Is there a market? How would I determine value? Toymaker

buckbeans-
Long time, no see! I haven't a clue what they'd be worth, do you? Maybe some research is in order. Stay in touch. Toymaker

Nice set of tools, the handles are super. I've done similar with many of my Warren blades, only my handles aren't as pretty! LOL Long as they work!

Yes, the handles are pretty, and the tools are sharp and well taken care of. Does anyone have an idea of what they should sell for? How can I find out?Toymaker
