Despite my griping about narex
Response To:
The trouble with Aldi... ()

They're very good for the price. I bothered rob in his hardness testing to not consider just finding some wonder steel and stuffing it in a handle and declaring it superior because that's already out there and the $60 level with koyamaichi is really about where edge holding tops out.

When you start figuring put how you'd make a chisel, the industrial makers like narex and Ashley iles are selling retail what it will cost you to make.

Once you start getting a lot of exposure, you can get critical of some of the narex chisel properties, but that doesn't negate the fact that they're way more than fair for the cost.

In my opinion, even the expensive chisels are.
