On February 20th 2011 at the Sturt Handtool Open Day I ordered 3 chisels from Australian company Harold & Saxon Chisels run by Trent Powrie. Today, 629 days later, my chisels arrived. To compensate for the delay (which was for a variety of reasons) Trent included a fourth chisel. Ultimax 1/4" & 1/2" Mortise Chisels, 1/8" & 1 1/4" Bevel Chisels.
The chisels haven't made it to the shed yet, but as you can see they are very impressive. The handles Australian Gidgee. The blades Cryogenically treated M2 High Speed Steel. Their performance should be among the best in the world.
Over the next few years I hope to complete the set.
