First of all, I want to say thanks for the responses to my forum topic http://lumberjocks.com/topics/17579
I decided to give them a try because I love the size and feel of these chisels. Grizzly was fast to send them out. The only reason I did not give these chisels 5 stars is because they took a lot of work to flatten and sharpen. The third picture is the worst chisel of the bunch laying on my table saw. I did get it flat and sharpened though. I used the scary sharp method( glass and sand paper). I have used these on some maple and walnut so far and they hold an edge way longer than my Irwin chisels. Overall I am very pleased with these chisels. I did leearn how to set the hoops on them also. I read a lot of blogs on the subject before starting. I took a bunch of pics and will probably blog about my process soon.
