Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blue What do you expect?
When I bought these chisels at Home Depot, I didn't expect top of the line. The price was right, the chisels came sharp out of the package, and sharpen easily. I am not a cabinet maker, so negative commentary about blade profiles or alloy hardness would beg the question as to why someone who finds these issues important would have bought these in the first place--you're going to trash a Home Depot product for not performing at a professional level?...really? We all know you get what you pay for. I also like the fact that these are USA made. To me, that's worth taking a chance on something. For my uses they work fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by UKguy Good chisels for the money
These chisels are great everyday workhorses. Ok maybe the steel is not quite up to top notch but they are $20 !! C'mon guys what do you want for $20 lol
I live in the UK and I have bought a few sets of these on my visits to the US and I think they are great, I use them for fitting doors and trim, I don't get involved with cabinet making and the finer aspects of woodworking and these chisels aren't aimed at that market.
Some strange comments in the reviews, "they smell" really?
"they rust easily" well don't leave them in a damp atmosphere. any chisel regardless of cost will rust if left in the wet.
Here's a tip, buy a good honing guide, Veritas make one, its not cheap but you will get a great edge on even the cheapest of chisels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lavawill General use
These chisels are great for general use I use them almost daily never had a chip or rust after a lot of use. They sharpen in seconds with a diamond hone and hold a edge well. After my routine sharpening you can shave with them if you would like, sharpen front edge then burnish the back lightly, razor sharp. These are not good for fine work like dovetails and if that is what you want to do with them buy a set of sweethearts they are about 10X as much but well worth the money. But don't use the sweethearts for what these are designed to do general purpose heavy work you will have problems with them.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by John Excellent value and good quality for many home projects
I needed a chisel to install new wooden doors in my home and after reviewing the options at Home Depot I choose the three piece set and was very pleased with the sharpness,variety of sizes,quality and most of all the price. I felt I purchased three chisels for the price of one. These will be in my tool box for a long time,

I have used some very expensive chisels. These are great for diy folks. You can pay a lot more for a good set of chisels. For Pros, you will want to consider ones with the steel all the way through the handle but for homeowners these should work well for mortising doors, etc.

I am a beginning woodworker, but not a novice to quality tools. I read other poster's reviews and inspected my purchase for nicks and dings before purchasing.
That being said, I took my chisels straight out of the blister package and began using them on practice dovetails. The chisels were sharp and flat, and have a very nice feel and weight. After using them for a few hours I called it a night and honed them with fine and superfine oilstones. Now the chisels are even sharper and ready for more.
I rated this item 5 stars all around for quality. These are not Lee Nielsens or Two Cherries chisels, but they are top notch for a $20 investment at a big box store. I also chose these chisels because they were MADE IN USA.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sgn14 Excellent value and good product.
The three chisels packaged together are just what is needed for the projects which I have including stained glass and frames for the panels.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Csatter Nice chisel set
Installing doors and needed a chisel to do the work. Bought a set instead of just the one I needed. The ones I got needed to be sharpened as out of the package they had a rough edge. After sharpening they worked well. Good chisel for around the house usage. Would not call them professional.
