MY wife and son got me three Matsamura bench chisels for father’s day, completing my set of Japanese chisels. They are like that… metric equivalents and slightly smaller, but as long as you are aware of it, it actually is a useful feature.

For years I was using a cheap set of wood handled chisels that I bought in Mexico and got a lot of mileage out of them. I am a believer in buying the best you can afford, but if all you can afford is cheap, treat them as if they were the best made and you will be surprised how much they will give back.
