Some golden rules of sharp chisels.
Do enjoy the beauty of effortlessly shaving away .003” of end grain with a “scarysharp” chisel.
DO keep the tips protected/covered!!
DO keep your chisels honed
DO make and keep them scary sharp
DO place your chisels down in a safe location with the tip NEVER impacting anything harder than wood
Do keep your chisels lightly oiled to prevent rust

DO NOT EVER drop your chisels. Murphy’s law dictates that it will land on the corner and cause you 30 minutes of your life.
DO NOT EVER put one hand on the chise handlel, and the other in harms way holding work. Think of a chisel as a loaded gun. DONT MESS WITH THE BUSINESS END.. It bites!

My 2 cents.
