Re: premium chisel vs narex

Hank Knight
David,

I agree with your analysis. I have five Imai bench chisels and four Imai slicks. They are superb chisels and cost a bunch more than my Matsumuras, but in actual use, I don't find them much better than the Matsumuras. They are hand made, better looking and feel good in the hand, but they don't outperform the Matsumurtas. That doesn't mean that I regret the purchase. On the contrary, I'm very fond of them and I'm glad I bought them. I love beautiful tools and my Imais fit the bill perfectly.
