I’ve read some nice things about Narex chisels for cheapness. They are metric and got 4 of 5 stars in Amazon reviews. I have a set of old Marples, and a hodge-podge antique chisels including some Peugeot Brothers chisels my Dad probably pilfered during WWII. I re-handled the 3/4 inch one in Tulipwood and ground it with a longer bevel for paring work. Steel seems better, and “Frenchie” is my go-to cleanup chisel.

If you don’t mind spending time at it, I favor the Veritas MKII Jig and scary-sharpening.

-- "Bordnerizing" perfectly good lumber for over a decade.
