Roughneck Bolster & Cold Chisel Set 3Pcs
well worth it
these bolster chisels for the money are well worth it. have been using old ones with blunt tips for years with no guard. too many sore knuckles, should have bought these years ago.

The rubber handles slips towards the end (because you're holding onto the grip and hammering the metal part) whilst hammering and I end up hitting the rubber guard. eventually, the rubber guard can not take much more accidental punishment and rips. Otherwise, it's great value for money.

Good value all-round performer
Having spent several hours with my dad's old, blunt bolster taking up two thirds of a patio, I decided to invest in one of my own. The set seemed like a good option as it would cover a mix of uses and worked out cheaper than buying each item separately. Given my tendency towards the occasional wayward blow with the lump hammer the hand guards were also an appealing feature! The new set performed well and I managed to get through the rest of the patio a lot quicker. Like some other reviews, I did find that the hand guards did have a tendency to slip up the shaft every now and then, although this was easily corrected. In terms of durability: time and usage will tell how long they keep their edge but so far very happy with the purchase.

Sturdy set which has easily done all I've asked so far. Look and feel really well made and should last the test of time. Only issue I have is that after a good few blows the plastic moves toward the bottom and needs banging back up.
