At $76.00, these chisels are a great buy for all around shop use. I have had them a year now and have re-honed them only once. They really hold an edge. The set goes from 1/4” – 1 1/2”. The oblong handles are comfortable, don’t roll around and can take a real beating. They are better than the Marples and the other big box brands that I have used.

They sure look good, glad to hear that they work well. That price doesn’t seem outrageous, either.

I have these chisels also and I agree with everything stated above. Great tools. I’ve come to realize that almost every tool from Lee Valley is well made as opposed to the box store brands.

For the sake of posterity, this set of seven chisels is currently $109. :) I was in awe of the original price and zipped over to the LV site to check them out. I’m sure they’re still well worth the current price.

Have your say...
