    Wow! These live up to the name "micro" in their size, but their handles are not too small to hold and use for longer carving sessions. Handle design being octagonal also helps keep them from rolling off the workbench. Light and easy to maneuver. Now, onto the cutting edge--holds an edge well. Is it worth buying the whole set vs. individuals? For me, it was worth buying the set because I can't predict when I'll need 2mm or 3mm. The size range is great. Edge holds well and just needs occasional stropping. These live up to the reputation of being a solid American made product.

    Overpriced, underperform

    Purchased these because of glowing online reviews. I would throw these out but can't bear to see $80 going into the trash. The shafts on most of the set spin in the handles, making them impossible to control. The steel tip on one chisel split down the middle the first time I used it. Kind of makes the poor sharpening the least unfavorable thing I can say.
