I purchased these chisels for general woodworking use. I liked the style, the leather case and the profile of the metal form. However, if you are looking for total perfection these fall short. One handle had a serious knot in the wood (I guess one of the assemblers had a bad day that day?). The machining of the metal was not what I expected. There appeared to be some chattering at the metal nearest the handle on more than just one of these chisels. Not very flattering but not a deal killer. I will keep this set because of it's nostalgic look and a passing grade of overall fitness. Companies and workers don't take pride in the products that they provide. It's sad. Worldwide we've all lost something in providing the consumer a quality product for a competitive price. Then we just look at it as a product of the times. Didn't the same thing happen to Detroit's major product lines?
