I got a set of japanese chisels from them. Lowest price I could find. Strangely, one of the chisels had a hole drilled through the handle. Doesnt effect use, I emailed them about it, they said if I sent it in, they would replace. I didnt feel like going through the hassel. So in one experience, I would say it was ok. But, I hadnt heard of them before either.

I’ve bought from Manny when I used to go to the Woodworking Shows. Ok stuff, not premium, but good.

I have purchased several items from them, and have always been completely satisfied. Never had a reason to contact their CS.

If that’s the same Manny’s in Lexington, KY, I used to go in a few times a year when I lived around there. Pretty varied selection of stuff. I moved about five years ago and caught them on a move to a bigger location, hundreds of printed plans. Nice folks too.
