Subject:
Cr-Mn vs. Cr-V chisels *PIC*

Winston
Curiosity got the best of me and I ordered a set of chisels from Amazon that look almost identical to the Aldi chisels that Paul Sellers touts. These ones are labeled Chrome Manganese and were $10 for a set of 4. There's also a set that looks identical (even the same brand), except that they're labeled Chrome Vanadium, and they were $16 for a set.

Anyone know if there would actually be anything different between them, or would it just be the labeling that differs?

For the curious:
