Depends on budget, obviously. If you have $170 to spare you might consider Lie-Nielsen, which is based on a Witherby. Personally I have two flea market finds (about $15 each) that work well and only required a minor amount of tuning up. But if you need one right away for a project you may not be able to wait until you stumble across a used one somewhere.
I also have this French-style one that I bought new, really like it a lot and encourage you to take a look:

Steer clear of ones that are made for peeling logs.
