I also carefully studied the report on chisels in FWW, and on my next pass thru Atlanta, I plan to stop at Highland Woodworking and pick up a set of Narex chisels. With that said, for quite a few years I’ve used a set of moderately priced Ace Hardware chisels. They are very durable and can be sharpened to “shave the hair off the back of your hand” sharpness. In fact, on my latest project, a hard curly maple Kentucky rifle stock, I have been shaving off a few thousands at a time on the end grain of the butt. This is pretty good performance.

What I really need at this time is a good set of Mortising chisels. These are really expensive.
