I second that... I've got a set of Stanleys- not old ones from "way
back when Stanley was good", but the ones you can get in the hardware
store right now. My brother has the same set. My cuts are all smooth
and clean, and the edges hold up just fine. His are rough and look
like junk- the difference is that I carefully sharpen them on a set
of Arkansas stones, and he "sort of" sharpens them on the cupped,
course grey stone he uses on kitchen knives. In fact, any chisel that
isn't made of tin will work just fine- it's all a matter of taking
care of them.
