    Your pictures are also quite different than last time. Tyzack is a well known name in the masonry trade. He is best known for his trowels but also for scratch tools, chisels, jointers etc. for not only brick and block but also for plastering. You can find images and his entire history online. If you look at his tool blade thickness and handle design you won't confuse him with the Tyzack in Sheffield who is noted for saws and other blade tools.

    You don't seem to listen well so I copied this for you from Spear & Jackson....they own the company you refer to from Isle of Man. I feel sure they can answer your questions if you simply listen.

    Also within the company is the well-known Tyzack range of plastering tools. Founded by another Sheffield lad, William Tyzack (1781- 1858); the company really got into its stride through his nephew Joseph. Having developed a profitable working relationship with the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, Joseph registered the Isle of Man triskelion 'legs' - still proudly worn by the company today - with the Cutlers' Company in 1847.

    Their trademark was registered in the U.S.A in 1929 and approved in 1930.
