Six months ago, I went looking for a new set of chisels. I wanted wood handles and I also wanted tools that didn’t taper too much at the sides. That’s a popular feature these days, but except when paring narrow spaces between dovetails, it can do more harm than good.

I was intrigued when I found this set of American-made chisels from Buck Brothers. They looked good, but the price seemed too good to be true. When they arrived, they didn’t need much preparation to go to work, and I was pleasantly surprised.
