Anybody here familiar with Lee Valley bevel edged chisels? I was planning on purchasing 2 bevel edged chisels.. sizes 1/4″ and 3/8th”. but it mentioned in the small print that the side bevels are not ground as close to the chisel face as with other lines, and went on to say that this might be limiting in a specialized use like cutting dovetails.
So I thought I might order the Hirsch Firmer chisel instead. But if you ask me the edges on the Hirsch firmer chisel blades look indentical to the Lee Valley Bench chisel.
I am searching for a moderately priced quality dovetail chisel.. Would the Hirsch firmer chisel ($21.50) be ok for dovetailing.. getting into the corners???? The Lie Nielson chisels are a bit pricey.
