Finally usable

As promised, the second half of my review. Using a bench grinder, Jet water wheel, several grades of wet & dry, numerous dowels and formers to gain the right profile and lots of honing compund I have finally got a set of polished chisels. Apart from the V tools - which were beyond my skill level - all perform well. So, if you have many hours available to get them sharp, these are a real bargain.

Do not buy it

Steven Mizen has described them quite accurately. Extremely bad purchase.

Need lots of work prior to use

These are aimed at novices to woodcarving and are priced accordingly. Quality is therefore extremely low – but you do get twelve for the price of one good quality chisel. Description states ‘will need honing prior to use’ – this is a major understatement. Each chisel requires substantial grinding/reshaping before they will be ready for sharpening/honing. Walls are uneven and too thick. Bevels are ground to around a completely inappropriate 40 degrees and are nowhere near the right shape. Similar to the other 12 piece set on offer from Axminster. On a positive note, I really like the handles!
I’m still working on grinding them into a useable product – so will get back at a later date to provide a review of them in use.
I’d recommend novices save a lot of time and money by buying 3 or 4 decent chisels instead – these will only dishearten someone new to the craft.

good value

These chisels are of a good enough value for the money. Metal is not the hardest, but acceptable. Some blades are not perfect, as there are marks. Handles are good as well. Overall, I am happy with the purchase. Another good value for money from Axminster, in my opinion.
