Vanished tool brands: Samson socket chisel (Union Hardware, Torrington, Connecticut)

Above, a "Samson" (presumably named for the biblical strong man) wood chisel, reportedly made by Witherby for this firm. Mister G has previously posted a photo of his Union hacksaw frame and a link to information on the company's history.  They stopped making tools in 1946 to concentrate on sporting goods.

This socket chisel is like a knife, I can hardly imagine how people work with it.
