Just received my Sorby chisel. It's a fine chisel no doubt, but the image was of a skew edge chisel and I got a straight edge. I am going to keep it as it was a great price, but I didn't really want another one. I don't think this is a Sorby issue so I don't really know how to rate this.
Very well made.
The sharp edges were well protected with fitted plastic covers.
A very fine chisel
I bought two of these, a 1/4" and a 1/2". They kind of just sat in the package for quite awhile until I needed to use them this weekend. I honed them to a mirror finish and razor sharpness and I must say that they are probably as good as anyone would ever need. They retain an edge very well and if you keep them honed, you will have great pleasure in using them.
