These chisel sets are identical to each other in every way except one: the blade material.…
We like the PM-V11 best—it gets our Top Tool award—but if the premium price proves daunting, go for the O1 blades that outlasted most other O1 blades in the test. The crisp bevel-edge profiles on both sets let you slip these chisels into the tightest places for trimming. Veritas heat-treats the maple handles—crystallizing the sugars to make them even harder—turning them varying shades of brown, so don’t be alarmed if your chisels don’t match.
