A this point I'd be unable to tell whether this chisel is shop or factory made. Looks very well made. The overall shape and profile are really awesome. One would think with the current progress and all those CNC we would get the most refined chisels ever, but no, apparently it requires a guy in a garage and a bunch of old files.
Re: bowing - isn't it something we want on a chisel? Assuming it bows in a right direction and just a little bit.
