Question Need info on Wood Carving tools

My Dad passed away a year ago. He took lessons from a fellow in Frankenmuth, MI about 20 +/- years ago. He has a set of tools. All I could see on the metal is what looks like "CH Germany". The have wood handles. There are 27 tools in the set.

Anyone have an idea of the value of these? Also, suggestions on best way to sell? I appreciate any input.

I suggest that you ask again in the carving website forums of Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine.
All kinds of carvers from all over the world.
My condolences on your Dad's passing.

Tim, my condolences on your Dad's passing as well.

if you could post some photos of the set and some close up
shots of the trademark, that may help.
each tool will be a different price. condition also plays a part.
so there is no way to give a price for the set without seeing what it is
and the condition of the tools. do you want to know the value
just for personal reasons or are you going to sell them ??

as mentioned, there is a carving forum here.

The value of chisels would vary quite a bit depending on what they were and the condition. You might post a picture of a few at a time with any information you can. There should be a number up by the handle. This would be the size of the chisel. We would just have to guess at the curvature. It's been around 40 years since I've bought any chisels and they were running fifteen to twenty dollars each then. Now they are probably more than double that. If we could determine what you might have you could google the current price. They would probably be close to the value of new chisels. They are something that just doesn't wear out.

The curvature of a chisel is called sweeps and the size is in milometers. A flat chisel like a carpenters chisel would be sweeps #1 and if the chisel was completely U-shaped it would be sweeps #11. #2 through #10 would be various curves between. Then if the end was curved like a spoon it would be a spoon chisel and would be valued more. Then there is a chisel that is V shaped and that one is a V parting tool. They usually run around the same price as the other chisels. The size being the only variant.
