For the record, I purchased a Craftsman 6 pc in 2013 USA made and love it, never had to sharpen any of the chisels. So sharp, I spray them down with a rust inhibitor in the fall. I purchased this set to use for more production level chiseling removing caulking in tight areas, cleaning up surfaces vs my USA set. I've cross shopped this set, it isn't a lower end economy set, has same strike plate on top, and will probably be durable over the years. I can't speak to sharpening these I will say I do not use the 1.5" in my 6 pc and primarily use the 3/4" and 1" sizes. You can't go wrong with this 5 pc set when you can get it on sale.
you will not be getting these same chisels(black handle)style which were made in the U.S.A. when I ordered these a few months back I was excited about them because I had seen them in store months back and they felt great and had a great quality and finish, so when i saw them on sale online I jumped on it. next day I picked them up in store only to find out that they were the new style,black and red, I asked the associate and I was informed that this was the new style. sure enough, I get home and started inspecting my new tools only to come across a poor metal quality horrible grip handle and worst of all, MADE IN CHINA. hopefully craftsman brings jobs back to the U.S isnted of manufacturing crappy tools overseas. disappointing.
Good quality Material Work well when kept sharp easy to sharpen.
Sturdy, quality made tools.
