Dakota Miniature Chisels - Set of 7

Their version -
This set of miniature chisels is specially designed for intricate and detailed work. Despite their size, these chisels are very durable and can withstand the rigours of vigourous use. Made from stainless steel, these chisels have ridged, hexagonal shanks for a comfortable grip and can be honed to a razor sharp edge. Featured in the set are three straight chisels 2mm, 3mm and 4mm, a 3mm left hand skew, a 3mm right hand skew, a 4mm fan tail and a 5mm fan tail. The skews and fan tail chisels are perfect cleaning up small mortises and corners. Each chisel measures approximately 145mm in length. Set of seven comes in a protective plastic wallet.
My version -
Seven micro carving tools for 9.95 from a reputable supplier sounds like a bargain when they add 5.95 for shipping by courier that isn't bad either.

They were sent by Mail - not even recorded delivery. The tools were in a sealed plastic bag containing a plastic tool pouch stating 'Made in India'. As you can imagine the steel wasn't the best and although highly polished the finish was crap. There were no real flat surfaces and everything had to be flatted and beveled before sharpening. The 4mm fan tail was so skew
