Are Robert Sorby carving chisels any good? There are a bunch at an estate sale this weekend and I’m wondering if I should take the time (and money) to buy them.

Anytime you have a question about a particular tool or mfg, look it up on eBay.

yeah, they are pretty good but whether they are a bargain
depends on the price.

Have your say...
