Picked up this 8 piece set from a friend. Can’t find any info on it. Handles are a little over 12” long with 4” chisels. It says high speed steel on the handle and made in USA – any one have an idea how old they may be? Is it really steel or is it carbide?

Not carbide, just plain old (and good) HSS.
I have a bunch. They are not too old, but they work. Keep ‘em sharp. You’ll like ‘em.
