Take a look at these, does anyone think they are any good? Me I can’t really tell from the short vid posted what about mortice’s and dovetails?

Ehhh. I’d think replacing those tips would get pricey after a while.

I’m wondering if you act now they throw in a second set for shipping and handeling.

I could see the appeal to some trades guys – some of whom are
really clueless about sharpening and don’t want to go home and
maintain tools after work.

Might be good for carpenters. Someone who can’t be afford to slow down to sharpen anything. I my experience, most carpenters don’t know how to sharpen all that well. I’m pretty sure they didn’t have fine woodworking level work in mind.

I cannot see much point in this , and the price makes these tips un-attractive to me anyway.
Sharpening chisels is part of the fun or at least a part of the hobby/job.If we get or adopt a nanny philosophy to all sharpening then we loose out as craftsmen,It’s a fundamental and important part of woodworking . MY 3 cents. Alistair
