I bought this chisel because I...

Guest from Pine City, MN Posted January 1, 2013
I bought this chisel because I frankly don't have a gift for sharpening, and my cheap chisels constantly needed it. So I wanted to invest in my first real turning tool, and the promise of something that stayed sharp excited me. The guy at the Rockler store showed me a $200 set of chisels and said "Those are great. I have them. But I never use them since I bought this carbide one." I know why! It's so easy to use and control, and I've turned lots sorts of stuff in the last couple weeks mostly bowls and it's as sharp now as when I bought it. I think I'll have to get a flat one for scraping and flattening, but with some patience even the round one does a great job. I like turning because it's relaxing, but it wasn't relaxing when I was struggling so bad with my other chisels. This one makes me enjoy it again in a big way.
