I would be an ideal target for a set of chisels like that, except I already have them.

My use of them is rare, and in my set of 10, I probably only have four in shape, but they are lovely to have around for making guitars if you're shunning the oscillating spindle sander.

If there isn't enough price support here, I will probably buy yours anyway, take one for the team and make my set larger.

The key for me in keeping those incannel pattern making gouges sharp is to keep the primary bevel gradual and keep the end of the bevel in shape with a hard buff. They still slip through the wood well and are easy to keep in shape and the failure point if there would be one is pushed up away from the edge. It would drive someone insane to work with a bevel two degrees two shallow in them and constantly chase chips.
