REXBETI REX042 10pc Premium Wood Chisel Set Review

Here, we have a REXBETI REX042 6-piece premium wood chisel set that does the job well. It comes with a blow-moulded case with space for every knife, meaning storage is a simple task. It comes with every knife you need as a beginner in wood chiselling. The product’s versatility gives the consumer something to think about while browsing. The blades are made from chrome vanadium steel that has been heat treated. 

This means they are likely to maintain their sharpness for quite a long time. That’s good value for investment. The handles are made from rubber, which offers a tougher grip than wood. The only problem is that they may not last as long. A hard metal disk at the back of this product will allow you to safely use a hammer whilst chiselling without destroying the product.

It comes with both a honing and sharpening tool. These are very useful in prolonging the life of your product. They are also useful for improving the straightness of your work when chiselling. The product has more advantages than disadvantages.

Aesthetics

At first look at this REXBETI REX042, we can tell that it is of a higher quality than others in the range. The product comes in a lovely set with a matt black and orange finish. The handle of the blade is made from rubber which helps quite a bit when dealing with the grip. The presentation of the product looks better than many of the others that I have seen around.

The case has been blow moulded, allowing the user to safely store it without hurting the blades. They are also slightly bigger than many other knives meaning that people with larger hands are well accommodated with this product. The blades are quite spectacular. Being made from chrome vanadium heat-treated steel. They grab your attention with their shine when you open the box.

Performance Review

In terms of performance, this is one of the top performing chisels sets that you can buy on the market. The product comes with 6 blades that include different size knives, all designed for chiselling. I would describe them as perfect for a beginner who wishes to take their art seriously. The blades are made from Chrome Vanadium, meaning they are much more durable than anything else. They offer the user something powerful and well-made. With blades like this, you can rest assured that they will not lose sharpness over time. 

This is even further improved because the product comes with a sharpener if you want to add extra to the blades. The honing and sharpening guides are value-for-money additions that many manufacturers do not add to their products. This is because it can also be used for plane irons. The handle is made from rubber, so even if you sweat, it will not heavily affect your grip. This also, however, means it is less durable. With constant use, the rubber may begin to peel off or wear out. They also have metal at the end, allowing you to strike them from the back with a hammer without breaking the product.

Safety

This product is quite safe for a beginner to use. The rubber handle stands out quite well because it does not begin to slip if your hands are sweating. The case of the product is also well designed to enhance the user’s safety. That is because you can store each individual knife in a position that was manufactured for it. With this, you are unlikely to lose these anywhere around your workspace. 

Who is this product ideal for?

I’m tempted to argue that this product could work for professionals, but many better products are available. Rather, I would suggest that this product is ideal for someone with experience in chiselling. I would suggest it for someone who wants to work on something part-time but not professionally. If you are also a very serious beginner, then this is something you can consider acquiring to help you learn. It is just important that you keep this box away from young children because there is potential for harm to occur. The whole package is quite efficient. 

Our Verdict

In the end, I would 100% recommend the REXBETI REX042. It is made from high-quality steel, meaning the blades will serve you well over time. A big flaw with many blades is that they require sharpening again or replacement after a little bit of use.

With this product, you will receive quality in that you will have them for many years without experiencing any trouble. If you feel that the product needs to be sharpened, then you can use the provided sharpening tool.

There is also a honing tool in the box that will allow you to make straight cuts as you work. This will improve the overall design of all your creations when using the product. The packaging that you get with the product is fantastic. Some knives do not come with a blow moulded case meaning that tools often get lost, and then what is the point? The only problem is that a rubber grip can often begin to break if used in extreme conditions. You must also check out our MARKETTY Professional Wood Carving Chisel Set.
