I spent about 10 minutes on each chisel flatting the back and putting a good edge on and have been very pleased. Don't expect these chisels, or any, to come sharp out of the box.
They feel very good in my hand and have stood up to quite a bit of hitting with a wooden mallet.
Would purchase again.
Good steel when properly honed and keep its edge well
Two had the blade slightly misaligned with the handle. I'm right handed, they dog leg left so they are usable (if I was a lefty I'd have to return them). One of these had a poor fit between the blade bolster and ferrule. One handle had a small check in it that was repairable. Two required minor flattening of the back during sharpening.
That said, I bought them for the quality of the steel and they do sharpen up well, you can tell they are the real deal, forged English steel.
My intention is to use them as an expendable job site paring chisel (I'm a professional finish carpenter/cabinetmaker). I would not hit them with anything harder than my hand (even my head is too hard) given the quality of the handles.
They will never replace my old Sorby's or Marples for bench use in the shop, that wasn't my intention, and for the price are better than the Irwin or Stanley sets, which I also own and routinely abuse.
Conclusion? Good steel that holds a lovely edge, marginal handles that you may end up replacing at a price that won't leave you sleepless if one goes missing.
