If you are like most amateur woodworkers, you have a drawer of a dozen wood chisels you can't sharpen well enough to use, and many with messed up blades because you used it for things they weren't designed to do. So you buy another cheap wood chisel and in a few uses it is shot too. So you ask yourself, "Why should I pay almost $40 for three chisels?" The answer is because these things are built to last.

First, the chisel goes all the way through the handle and has a flat plate at the top to completely transfer any tapping to the blade. You never have to worry about a plastic handle cracking or chipping. Second, these do not have a bevel edge. That's an edge which tapers down to a certain point and then a second angle to get the sharpened end. This results in a steep cutting angle and a two, angle blade to sharpen. This is difficult even for someone good. These chisels have just a single bevel all the way to the tip. Anyone with any sense can get these razor sharp and keep them that way.

I bought these to help me replace all the door knobs and latches in my house (about 30) and it saved me tons of time and effort, not to mention the cussing and swearing. They cut through wood like butter and were extremely accurate. MY wife thought the $40 bucks was worth every penny because she didn't have to listen to my yelling.

The construction for the price ratio is out of control in your favor. These are amazing to work with. I want to carve my handsome face in the tree outside I like these so much.

----UPDATE---- After a few months of use with some great results (in pine) the tip broke off the smallest chisel. These are NOT solid all the way through. Instead they have a composite core in the middle. So two things - one you will not have these for years with heavy use and frequent sharpening and two, a bit of modest applied prying pressure will snap the tip. Mine broke in oak trim chiseling out a door catch.

These are well built chisels for the price but I have found them inadequate for high end woodworking. The factory sharpening must be extensively worked on to produce an edge for use on hardwoods. (2 hrs per chisel). The side bevels do not go far enough down the sides of the chisel and if you use them to clean up dovetails the 90 degree edge hits the sides of the dovetail and leave marks which then have to be cleaned up. For carpentry, electrical work, etc. they are a good tool box chisel but spend some more money if you want furniture grade tools.

Maybe I'm the only one who would make this mistake. I thought from the image online that these chisels were short, maybe 6 inches long. I thought it would be a perfect set to have in my tool bag. In fact they are long and would not really be appropriate for a tool bag. The dimensions are given but not obvious. They certainly seemed like top quality tools just not what I was looking for. Thanks.

i have a lot of better chiesels but many times i throw these in my tool sack when i hit a project. if your are not a sharp freak these are good out of the box, if you are, a quick hone and they are even better. i like the way the case is, it protects both tool and fingers while not in use. they feel nice in your hand. they are a great go/ go along chiesel set

Did some deck post replacements... these chisels paid for themselves during the first weekend I used them. I don't do much woodworking, and I've seen other chisels out there for much, much more, but, for the average homeowner who needs to clean out a door jamb area for a striker plate or clean out a deck post notch, I highly reccommend.

You can shave with these our if the box. The only reason I have bought a second set is because I had a workman who thought it was neat to cut nails with it. Goodbye workman. I have used super expensive chisels that come from the factory with a bur on it so you can put your own edge on it. But honestly. I can talk nice shavings with these and need no mallet. A word to the wise. Do not let a contractor touch your Marples. They are like I was as a kid when my mom had to explain that a butter knife was not a screw driver,
I respect good tools and these are good tools.

If your an expert wood worker, you probably won't care for these.

If your a brute who uses wood chisels as a pry bar, you deserve to be beaten.

If your a beginner wood worker, or even an intermediate one, a good set of chisels are indispensable for cleaning up edges, cutting pockets, etc.

What sets these apart from other equally good chisels, is the grind. This has a single edge, requiring you to only sharpen at one angle. A lot of chisels require two edges- but its hard to sharpen for most people. Sharp chisels are your friend. It also has a nice cap at the end to hammer against. A nice carrying case to keep from getting cut (and dulling your Chisels! )
