Lee Valley part 10S15.17
Very inexpensive at the introductory price.
Can take a very sharp edge.
Comfortable handle, decent balance…reasonable workers.
Tons of lapping required, deep machining marks on back, not exactly flat.
Overall, I’m okay with what I paid, and I did save myself the time of having to make skew chisels at the grinding wheel…but the machining marks were a lot of work.
Once set up they are pretty good, but don’t expect them to be users right out of the box.
