For all the new kids on the block, if you are using chisels from a "box" store... Stop it. After sharpening these guys they are absolutely ridiculous sharp. I cannot even fathom how awesome a set of Pfiels or Sweethearts must be, but for the price, and the quality you HAVE to get a set of these. I'm completely rethinking the way I do things now because I have chisels that cut softwoods like meatloaf. It's absurd. If you are mad at your chisels or you find working with them difficult, buy Narex chisels. They will change your world.
