I’ve been wanting to upgrade my everyday use bench chisels. I’ve considered this one and that one, and after much deliberation have ordered a couple of the Veritas PM-V11 chisels. I hated to spend that much money, but the wife just told me she’s replacing her perfectly good cell phone with the newest iPhone. Geez! So I ordered them. I’ll have them long after her new phone dies. I got the 1/4 and 1/2 inch chisels. In the near future is much dovetailing. Might as well prepare for it.

Dude, should’ve just got the Aldi chisels for 7.99. They’re just as good.

Thank your wife for giving you the excuse you needed.

I just got a set of the Aldi chisels but mine were only 6.99 :) but I will bet the Veritas chisels are a lot better.

If they hold an edge like the Plane blades do they will be amazing!
