In the chisel shoot-out that FWW did in Oct2008 They liked the two cherries, but gave the recommendation for the Narex because they were better out of the box (Very Good vs Good) But they liked the ergonomics of the 2 cherries (very good vs good) The two cherries had thicker side flats which made them a little less ideal for tight dovetails. The two cherries was 3x more expensive than the Narex.

On the Footprint chisels the side flats were very thick (the thickest of the bunch) which means dovetails were more difficult. The Footprint beat out the Narex and the Two Cherries for ergonomics though.

So now that I’ve muddied the waters even more, happy shopping ;)
