I’m thinking about getting a chisel set so I can do some dovetail and mortise joints in upcoming projects. Now don’t kill me or anything, but I’ve been using some chisels I got from my dad’s hoard, which were pretty dull, but old and well made. I sharpen them on a grind stone but I try not to heat them up too much. The are sharp enough to shave with and don’t seem to dull easily. The are all metal with no wood or plastic handles, so I pretty much use them as utility chisels to take small pieces of wood off when needed.
I’m considering getting a set of 4 Footprint 465 chisels and would like to know what you all think.
