Not to disparage them, but it seems like Flexcut and Pfeil have cornered the market when it comes to woodworking stores and hobby stores. I can never find other brands unless I go online. Anyone else seen this? One time, ONCE, I found a Butz knife.

They may put tools in stores on consignment or
something to make it easy for the stores
to carry stock.

Well, when I go online, I can find at least 30 brands from super cheap to super expensive. With the lack of woodworking stores that are available to window shop in, I wanted to find a place with more variety. Don’t get me wrong, woodcraft has like 200 chisels/gouges/veiners in their display case…..........but they are all Pfeil. I want to be able to compare some side by side.

On a plus note, since Two Cherries is from Germany, I asked my Deutsch friend about picking up a set as it is easier to buy it in Germany and ship it here. He was all for it! Now to just save up the 300 dollars. LOL

You talking bench chisels or carving chisels? I picked up a set of 6 Two Cherries bench chisels from Jamestown Dist. for $150. Loved them so much I got a starter set of their carving chisels for around $180. Just can’t remember where.
