Product Description

From the Manufacturer
For the professional woodworker. The slightly squared special polypropylene handle gives a good, comfortable grip on this hard-wearing chisel. And there is less danger of the chisel twisting and slipping during use. Designed for use with mallet but can be struck occasionally with a hammer. Europe's most popular chisel. Bevel edge set includes 1/4-, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4, 1 and 1-1/4 inch chisels in wood box.

Four and a half stars really..., April 2, 2001
Reviewer: Scott Pointon "Ex-Marine, Librarian, Woodworker"

These chisels are a great value for the money. The other reviewers are correct, these are easy to sharpen and they do hold an edge fairly well. The handles feel extremely cheap, but I have been using a rubber hammer to strike the handles with and they are holding up fine. Looks can be deceiving I guess. I do like the shape of these handles better than a perfectly round handle. The box is cheaply made, but sturdy enough, and it does a great job of protecting the chisels from the hazards of shop life. I recommend these chisels as a good buy, well worth the money.

Good Starter Set - But skip the box, January 23, 2003
Reviewer: "firsttools"
These are my first set of chisels - I don't know how much I'll use them, so I want to keep the purchase cost reasonable. They arrived with an o.k. edge, but needed a little cleanup. The handles feel really solid. As for the box, well I really like to keep my stuff organized, so I like to get promo sets that come with cases - but this box was pretty [...]...The clasp on the front doesn't latch and the inside is just a flimsy molded polystyrene insert(same plastic they make disposable cold drink cups out of). I recommend getting one of the other sets without the box and either hanging them on pegboard or putting them in a toolbox drawer.

Marble Chisels, March 9, 2006
Reviewer: crg "Allan G"
Excellent; The Rockwell was 55/58 and made Sheffield England.I looked at a number of different chisels in all price range before purchasing. Some were less, others were a' lot more. These chisels came in nice "storage" box, that all its good for. They needed to be sharpened and they hold a nice edge. In my opinion you cant find a better set of tools the money.

 Irwin is Solid, January 31, 2006
Reviewer: K. Chan

Didn't want to spend too much on my first set of chisels. This set offers a good value on fine, precision German quality at a very reasonable price. They take stone sharpening well and can hold a sharp edge. A keeper.

Marples 6 piece chisel set, October 9, 2005
Reviewer: S. Stall "Carpenter"

The chisels are of fine quality and came in a very nice wood case with protector tips for each chisel. I have always wanted a set just like this one but found them too expensive. This set was priced well within my budget. The only complaint I have is that the tips of each chisel could hae been finished a little better. There is a little extra metal from the grinding that should have been cleaned off. Otherwise, I am very satisfied with my purchase

Reviewer: M. Reeves

The chisels appear to be very well made with an equally attractive and well made wooden box.They are also sharp as hell,yikes!They will be used to build a West Greenland kayak and have been used to repair an old window frame.Nice price too!Mike in Montana

     I worked in construction for 38  years installing Linoleum Floors, Formica Counter Tops, Ceramic Tile and lots and lots of Carpenter Work.  Now that I have put in my time at the trades I am selling tools because I believe after all the years using them, I am qualified to guide you in finding the right tool for the job.  -  Just for fun here's a picture of a couple of my trucks from my Floor Covering business, also a picture of my garage and my little dog called Marbles.  -  I will post notes here and there throughout the web site on tools and things that I think are important and/or solve problems, based on my experience.  -  When I was young it seemed impossible to finish a job successfully because there would be a part that just couldn't be done.  Later I discovered that when you have all the tools for the job the most difficult project goes smoothly.  -  Also lets face it, having a good set of tools is one of life's greatest pleasures.  Not only that but it is a great boost to your ego when you receive complements a job you have done.
