Customer Service, chisel return
I bought the Robert Sorby 6 piece Intermediate turning chisels in July 2021. I just started to turn my 3rd piece, a walnut bowl, shortly after beginning the roughing in of the bottom the bowl, the chisel snapped at the tang near the handle. I called Woodcraft, they are shipping me a new chisel immediately. Great customer service! The chisel, the jury is still out.
