"NOT ALL CHISELS ARE CREATED EQUAL"
What a difference between these and sears, home depot, lowes, etc. There were no wavy grind lines in the backs of the chisels, there was no dings in the blades. Yes they needed to honed and then put to work. I use 12 inch sharpening stones so I have not used the included stone or the blade guide, but both are what I would want to have if I did not already have those items and having them in the carry case just makes their immediate availability super.
