I’m using a set of chisel shaped objects from Stanley. They are one qualified pile of crap. Bought them before getting serious about handtools. The amount of work needed to flatten the backs of these three chisels is just staggering… And it is a lie to call these things bevel edged – the bevel ends more than 1,5mm above the edge. So the “lands” on the sides will stop you from getting into tight corners.

They are made from some variety of CV-steel. Doesn’t hold an edge very long, despite the fact that I’ve only worked with them in pine.

Only plus is that they do not rust. Other than that they will be denoted as soon as I can afford a proper set of chisels.
