I have a fair few of these queensland mango blanks laying around (they were too good a deal to pass up), and the steel on the Aldi chisels is pretty good – these are the ones that Paul Sellers raves about. Unfortunately the handles are a bit long, and not comfortable to my hands.
I’m now torn between all mango, or whether I should go for a different species per chisel. I’m erring towards the latter – I’ve got blackwood, redgum and jarrah blanks on hand. The redgum and jarrah can be tonally similar, so perhaps I should replace jarrah with gidgee or mulga?
