Hi, my partner is thinking about starting a new hobby where he uses chainsaws to make decorative ornamental sculptures, I'm just thinking he may need a chisel set to complete the finer details.
My question is which brand is best and from a carpenters point of view which size range is the best? Also it would be easier to hide under the tree lol many thanks

Not worth spending loads of money at first so go for a cheapish carving set and see how he gets on with the new hobby, you could spend fortunes if you wanted to. Maybe something like this set to get going.. ... SwkLhZ8g4X

or if you want to up the budget maybe the Flexicut MC100 10 piece set from Axminster ... chisles&nR[visibility_search][=][0]=1&

Somebody else may have a better idea as i have only done small amount of carving.

agreed, one of the cheap sets will get you a nice range of tools straight off the bat without spending too much- you'll learn more about sharpening, and get a better idea of what you want to splash out on too!
