For the manner in which men live is so different from the way in which they ought to live, that he who leaves the common course for that which he ought to follow will find that it leads him to ruin rather than safety. -Machiavelli

A battered old chisel
No...wait...you should have seen this thing BEFORE I brought it home. Believe it or not, this is an improvement. An old 3/4" Craftsman chisel. It features my very own, incompetent, but effective and comfortable repair to the top of the handle. There's nothing wrong with the picture, the blade is really bent (it is also curved on top, not just canted). I have almost restored it to working condition.
