Pros

Great set with a lot of the sweeps and sizes you'd need for most projects. Overall i’m happy with the price but bummed out over the tools internal profile finish. I also like the fact that the tools had been covered in something that looked like scotc...  Read More

Professional gouge sharpening is a must for any chisel or gouge set. Professional honing gives the user a primer on what a properly sharpened chisel is suppose to look like. This set absolutely needs honing for full effect but my initial impressions a...  Read More

The quality is top drawer for the selection of the chisel shapes so an excellent set for the beginner as well as the experienced carver. They send you loads of information concerning ongoing training in carving techniques. These are great carving chis...  Read More



Cons

These are branded gouges that are worse quality than any other 'branded' tool i've seen. These issues make these tools horrible for a beginner, and the quality is not worth the effort to fix for a pro. Either spend less money for something that isn't ...  Read More

A few of the tools have uneven (skewed) bevels. Two of them are visibly damaged at the tip conner and at the edge.

Twelve pfeil chisels for $30 more than this set. These grinds are very shoddy. I carve basswood and the chiseled just did not work.

With this cost, i expected that each chisel should have a protective cap.

Shipping


Oh, and they offer free shipping too.

Packaging/appearance


Quality is amazing, tools are sharp, packaging is lovely, and the brand is solid!

Competitiveness


I had one gouge that had a misformed edge.


They came sharp and with everything i needed to get started on a full-size project.


I recommend, for beginners, don't buy the more expensive, pre-sharpened set.


And while 1 side looks ok, the other shows no less than 4 different bevels.

    I had many positive things said about schaaf from members of a carving message board.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    When i opened the package and began inspecting the tools, the second one that i examined had the handle come off.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    I simply pushed the handle back on and got it to seat so it does not seem to want to come off now.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Whether the handles were damaged at the later stages of production or were not sanded to completion is unclear.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    It appears that the tool was never glued in place.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Again, it is something i can fix myself, but there seems to be some quality control issues with my set.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    They are sending the 3 and said i could replce the 4th whenever i choose.

    Excellent, made in china, copies of traditional european carving chisel designs.
