I have a set of the marples blue handled chisels. I think they are
alright, though they come so far from flat that I wouldn't buy them
again. Even after a couple dozen times sharpening them I still don't
have a mirror lap on the back, I mean right next to the bevel is good,
but further up...
If I had to do it again, I would buy a cheapo set for crappy projects,
and slowly purchase really nice ones kinda as needed. In fact I might
start doing that, and make the Marples my crappy set.
