I purchased this set of tools with a $10 coupon from Penn State, and have had about a week to put them to use.
For the most part these are decent chisels, hold an edge well, and are beefy enough to prevent chatter.
I knocked off one star due to the length of the chisel as a whole. I was expecting them to be a bit longer, They will suffice for work on my midi-lathe, but if you are getting into larger pieces I could foresee them being a bit of a hindrance.
The chisels came with a decent grind on them, 15 minutes and I had the entire box ready to go with razor sharp edges. I have cut walnut and redwood with these, and as I said before the edges have held up really well.
For the purposes of this review I can’t really say much about the scraper as it is the first scraper I have owned. It did put a finish cut on the wood that was outstanding.
