I don’t know what the handles are made from. I’ll ask my artisan friend when I show him the box. Those are Stanley Bailey chisels and I love them. I have used a chisel hammer and beat the stuffing out of them doing mortise work when I made my bench. I would recommend them as a “quality” set for someone starting out. I’ve had the clear yellow handled ones from the hardware store but these are very nice. They suit me. The other ones are carving tools but they were inexpensive. We’ll see how they do.
Thanks for the compliments. Time to sleep now for the day job writing Java code for all the big finance and insurance companies to use.
