Charles, First of all, tool choices are obviously a very personal thing. We are all very opinionated as to which is better. Most of us like to feel what we chose is the best. Most decisions are based on price, sometimes to save a buck, sometimes to get the best money can buy. We want bragging rights—-”I saved more than you did”, or “my expensive tool is better than your expensive tool” I have used quality ranging from Harbor Freight to Bridge City. I still will buy according to my need of an individual tool. All my tools are not high end, even though by my posts it may sometimes sound that way. I have some very cheap chisels for certain things I do.

As others have already said, get what is right for you. Two Cherries makes some really nice products. My son has the same set you are looking at. He is pleased with them . My favorite chisels are Robert Sorby. While I love them and use them all the time, I was a little disappointed how much work I had to do to flatten the backs. Once I did, they are great, although I don’t feel I should have for what they cost. The main reason I chose them is for their handles—again a very personal thing. Sounds like you prefer the Two Cherries handle.

I would say go for it. I think that is a set you would be very pleased with.
