Handmade in Oregon, these chisels performed exceptionally well. The acrylic-impregnated curly maple handles won’t mushroom when mallet-struck, but they’re slim and somewhat slick.…
The blade side bevels taper to such a sharp edge—great for dovetailing—that we had to blunt them slightly to avoid cutting our hands. These premium-priced A2 chisels are so well-made and attractive it almost feels wrong to touch them to a grinder or strike them with a mallet. For this price we’d expect a box or leather roll, but got neither.
