I purchased a set of Narex chisels and flattend the backs, hollow ground the bevel and then honed the edges. They didn’t come with a box so I built the tray to fit in my tool chest. Sharpening is done. Now back to the work bench. Tomorrow I start on the twin screw vise.

I bought a set of these and used them to cut the mortises and dovetails on my recently completed workbench. They did a great job. I think you will really like your set too.

I bought these chisels after fine woodworking rated them so highly in their review of chisels.They are an excellent chisels for a very modest price. I recently bought a matching mortise chisel that I think you could use to cut mortises in solid ebony. Fine old world (Europe) craftsmanship

These chisels took quite a bit of work and sand paper to get the backs flat. Not out of flat just machining marks The handles a re comfortable. They seam like good chisels at a great price. Figure 4 hrs to sharpen.

I think that you better just send those to me, I am afraid that you will cut yourself.
