Not as expected
I received the blades, they were dull. One 2 would cut lino. I couldn't get them sharp so I had a friend who knew how to sharpen blades and he couldn't do much better. There is one which I am not sure if it is a "V" or a badly made "U". They are nothing compared to E C Lyons Lino set which I bought since ordering these.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Solid Set for a Good Price
By Kris the Creative
from Walled Lake, MI
I really like these knives and the handles are very comfortable.
Poor Quality Control
One of the five chisels had a good size nick in it. I'm surprised Quality Control didn't spot it and reject it. The set was very inexpensive, but that's no excuse.

Not as good as lower priced options
from Muskegon, MI
My students and I had difficulty using these knives as the angle of the blade was too straight and the handles difficult to hold. I would like to return them

Nice Linoleum cutting knives

the handles don't come off - the knives are beautiful to look at and to handle.
Work great at an awesome price
By John Andrew
from Darlington, S.C.
I have had these tools for about 3 years. They are a more than a fantastic deal for the price. I cut hard gray lino and also soft and hard wood as reliefs to print with. I use a grease compound and leather strop to keep them honed. I do have some more expensive Japanese knives that I use also. However, I use both sets together. Cheap or Expensive they must be kept sharp to work well. As these tools come in medium sizes, I use smaller sized Japanese knives and gouges to do more intricate work. Nevertheless, I enjoy these Italian knives also.
Just what I needed.
