Subject:
Eventually becomes an irrelevant question

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
If a chisel is used much its ergonomics trumps the steel it is made from. The most important benefit of Unicoring a chisel is to make you favorite chisel better. Any Unicorned chisel is now good enough. We can choose by ergonomics and price because the differences in edge retention are now not significantly different.

I built all the drawers for a desk with a Unicorned Narex without interim sharpening. That feat is good enough for my needs.
