One of two socket-chisel sets we tested (the other was Stanley Sweetheart), the handles arrived loose in the blades, not uncommon for socket chisels.…
You can adjust their fit, if needed (ours did not), by removing material from the wood tenon, then firming them up with mallet blows. If you're not used to using socket-handle chisels, it might take a while to get comfortable gripping and using them.

Also available in 7- and 9-piece sets; add a leather roll to store the chisels for $65–$75.
