Those chisels will be ok for beginning projects but rebeveling to a 25 or 30 degree bevel is advisable. If you plan to carve a lot I suggest you learn to sharpen your tools properly. This includes honing or polishing. Be careful when you bevel the tools that you don’t overheat and ruin the temper. But you can retemper it just takes some expertise. I am a member of Woodcarving Illustrated and they have several tips and referrals to help you with this. Good luck w/that bench.
