Hi John,
If you’re on a buget I would recomend the higher priced set offered at Harbour Freight.
They are the ones with the dark red handles. The steel is pretty hard and I have reshaped several
for my needs.The Windsor brand (ash handles) are junk. In the higher end, I like the Richard Raffan tools
offered by Wood Turners Supply in Utah. I agree with those that think you should learn to use and sharpen standard tools. Anyone can scrape a piece of wood to shape and there is a use for that at times but learning the difference between a cut surface and one that is scraped is fundemental.
