Popular Woodworking thinks so. It is pretty dumb -

Probably not as dumb as those chisels, but what do you guys (and gals) think about these?

You know products like this sometimes end up as valuable collector pieces. Think Edsel, Type 94 Japanese pistol, etc. Not because they are great products, but because they are rare, and examples of really bad ideas. I might buy one just for that reason. Think about it. In 100 years having the only remaining pristine Chrasp in existence. Could be worth some serious money. :)

I bought a set (3) of those from Lowes. :oops: They are supposedly made by Kobalt tools.....Yea, they are just a useless as any of the Kobalt tools. :mad:
I wanted them for the rasp part at the time. :roll: That part doesn't work too well and neither does the chisel part. :x I suppose I could use them for opening paint cans and gnawing a 2x4 into something other than smooth. :razz:
I sure hope that Gene is right about being worth something in the future. Maybe my grand kids or great grand kids will find them in the junk drawer and get my mone back at least. :P
