Excellent quality, especially for the price
I originally bought this set for an introductory printmaking class and have since relied on it for all of my woodcut plates. I had previously tried other, less expensive brands to save money (bad idea in my case). My Power Grip tools fit naturally with the hand, were ready to carve upon arrival, and have maintained their sharpness through a variety of types of wood. With that said, I suggest also purchasing a FlexCut Slip Strop for honing (it accommodates all the gouges and chisels included in this set).

The only things that are missing from this set and that I wish were included are the clear protective caps that go over each blade (so the blades can't bump into the inside of the case). I've seen many Power Grip sets like just like this one come with these caps and it'd be nice to have them since I carry my set around with me a lot at school. However, this isn't enough of an issue to affect my five-star rating. I recommend Power Grip carving tools to anyone/everyone.

Intro to carving, set was polished sharp directly from the box and the grip is well designed and comfortable. Bought for the price and was happy. I'm not a sranger to tools and these are good quality. I've used everyone including the 1/8 gouge. I would recommend buying a leather strop and abrasive to keep them honed and mirrior sharp. Flexcut sells a good small wooden one with leather glued to it for around $15; it works well for chisels of this size. Do some research on how to sharpen, youtube.com has some good advice as well as other carving web sites.

I have had these tools for 5 years now and have done many carvings with these. Works great for 3D work as well as block prints. While the tools are small, they are well made and very high quality (especially for the price!). Hone with leather and you will not have any problems. The small U-gouge is pretty worthless, but the others are stellar. Great for small to med carvings. A great set at an amazing price... hard to beat the Power Grips.
