Lots of places and an experiment

When we made tools, somehow I never made the 1/2" mortise chisel. 1/8, 1/4, 5/16, 3/8 but no 1/2" . I have used them all(3/8 rarely) but had to borrow a 1/2" for bench, bed and large table mortises.

I have been curious about the Narex chisels and with Free Shipping! it became a cheap experiment. I get suckered into buying something every time LV has free shipping. With a sample in hand I can get the steel analyzed and see what it is, in fact. And I will pound on it to test its toughness. I have used chisels enough by now that I can assess the steel in short order through use.
