What size chisels did you use? Did you chop or pare?

I have tested a lot of steels and chisels. There is no doubt in my mind that PM-V11 significantly outlasts A2 steel in chisels.

This the following link I compared 4 chisel steels: PM-V11, A2, O1 and laminated white steel …

The laminated white steel just shaded the PM-V11, but these two were so far ahead of the others that they were not in the race.
