These are not your Home Depot chisels.
The story is that they were made in the 50”s but never finished.
They are now finished and sold by Craftsman’s studio.
I bought a set of Crank Neck Paring Chisels

I will say that it will be a good try with something to experiment with. Did you buy it?

Will you provide a review after you get them?

I do not think that I am qualified to review chisels.
I use chisels but I am not a chisels specialist. I cannot say if the steel is soft or not and so on.
I know someone who bought same chisels and the straight paring chisels and who is every qualify to write a review but I doubt that he will find the time to do it.
I bought these chisels mostly for history.
These chisels are no longer made since the 50’s, I believe, and most likely they will never be made again, this is why I bought them, of course I shall use them but this is not my main motivation for buying them.
I am thinking about buying a set of straight paring chiles for the same reason.
I am tools collector more than a real user.
I just love tools, the objects.

I was looking at these a few month ago. I emailed them and asked how they compared to Sorby and Henry Taylor. There answer was “not as thin a blade or as flexible, but excellent for the money”.

I have 3 of those I found at an estate sale. I like them a lot,
but you don’t pound on a crank neck chisel so the edges
are only used in hand-pushed cuts and hold up well.

When you need them, they are great to have.

Have your say...
