A pleasure in the hand
If you read woodworking sites many people recommend the Stanley 750 series of chisels and there are many reasons why. They feel good in the hand, from the wood against your fingers or palm being more comfortable than the hard cold of plastic to the balanced weight when you're working your project.

When the handle wears it can be replaced easily, this also lets you get a custom handle if you want a different length or feel.

Whether you buy a set new or find a well loved set of used chisels you won't go wrong with the 750's.

These sere supposed to be a nice reenacting of the famous 750 Stanley chisels. However upon receiving the package I was unpleasantly surprised by how thick the beveled sides are. This is more of a firmer than beveled chisels ! Apparently Stanley cut corners on this one by saving on the grinding operation and this significantly lowering the quality of the tool. The bevels are 2.5 mm ( 2/16" thick, which is unacceptable.

I needed a better quality set of chisels for fine furniture making. I picked up this 8 piece set for $158 on Amazon. The set continues to impress. The chisels arrived packaged in separate plastic bags, each in its assigned pocket in what can only be described as a fine heavy duty leather tool roll. Far better than I expected. The chisels were all square and relatively flat, ground to 30 degrees. The backs had some minimal machine marks and a few minutes on each back and bevel fully prepared each chisel for work. The handles were loose in the package, as expected from a socket chisel, but seated well with a good whack from my mallet and a little hairspray on the shaft for insurance. The side bevels are beautifully thin and the chisels are well balanced and very light, making for comfortable paring by hand. The Sweethearts allegedly use British 52100 bearing steel. If so, these chisels are indeed an improvement over O1 steel and far easier to sharpen than O2 or PM-V11. Plus chisels that are too hard hold edge longer UNTIL chipping occurs. Too soft results in rollover. I think this particular steel is perfect for the joiner or cabinetmaker. As an added plus, these chisels are far more comfortable to hold than the more expensive Veritas or Lie-Nielsen, as beautiful as they may be. This is proven out the first time you hold the chisel by the blade and attempt to pare by hand. The 30 degree bevel actually aids in chopping, so I’ve yet to regrind as this angle stregthens the edge a bit. These chisels hold an edge for a ling time without chipping or rollover. Finally, the sockete allow easy handle modification or replacement as needed, though with hornbeam for the handle material this will never be required by most users. Add Stanley’s lifetime warranty and these British made chisels are an excellent value. I would definitely buy them again if needed.

Not the most expensive chisels but clearly the best value. Very well made, good quality steel and machining. So far the chisels hold an edge well.

BEST ANSWER: We currently do not ship to Australia,sorry for the inconvenience.
Where are these made? Is it English steel?
A shopper on Jan 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the blades of these socket chisels are made in Sheffield, England. This town has been renowned for its steel since production began, far into antiquity. The hornbeam handles? I believe they are globally sourced. A very quality set that I received.
Are these new or refurbished?
