Given that this set of five chisels will set you back $435, I’d probably never wield one as an emergency screwdriver. At this price, I might never actually use them at all — maybe just frame them for my mantel, or trade them for a week or three in Sidney French’s brother’s workshop.

With widths of 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 5/8″, and 3/4″, these 10-3/8″ long chisels feature 5″ long A2 steel blades hardened and tempered to Rc60, with a 30-degree cutting edge. The tang extends through the acrylic-infused figured maple handles. You can buy ’em from the manufacturer or, appropriately, The Best Things website.

    Beautiful chisels, but for that kind of $, I’d go for their dovetail chisels. I got a set of the Lie Nielsen chisels on sale for 25% or I wouldn’t even have those. Still, it would be nice to have the disposable income to spend $87 on a chisel.

    “Probably” he says. (big grin) Boy oh boy.

    I got my Blue Chip set for $45, and I bet my dovetail joints will be just as crappy with those as with these Blue Spruce guys.

    Limiting factor = skill of craftsman.

    The guys that I know that have the Blue Spruce chisels are all extremely talented furniture makers. I don’t think they’d argue with you, KoKo. They just have the $. I do like the fact that my LNs hold an edge a lot longer than my Marples.
