I’m looking into complementing my tool arsenal with a bunch of new chisels and are now trying to decide which brand to go with. My priorities are:
1. Quality & Craftsmanship
I do have some special aspects I look into as i think I as a buyer “vote” with my money (and if I buy some cheap stuff I say that I want more cheap stuff to be made), and ethics is a big thing for me (which makes some countries less desirable in my book).
I have some good old (pre 50’s) Swedish Steel ones which are good but hard to find nice ones as they are no quality toolmakers left in this country (and you don’t know the history of pre-owned items . I also have a Japanese chisel that is nice, but here some ethical questions plague me a bit here. I’ve checked out some Two Cherries chisels and they didn’t really tickle my fancy.
So which brands and models do you guys and gals think I should look into?
