I purchased the NAREX Bevel-Edge Chisels for Lee Valley a year ago and am very happy with them. Fine Woodworking rated them as their best value and in my opinion hold an edge very well. They also come in metric sizes and are priced very reasonably (I know that is not a big concern for you) with the prices ranging from $8.80 for the 6mm to $16.60 for the 40mm. The description from Lee Valley States “These are well-ground bevel-edge chisels with Rc59 chrome-manganese steel blades. The stained beech handles are shaped for comfort and control, and have steel hoops and ferrules for durability. Available individually or in sets of four or eight, the chisels are about 10” to 11” long overall. Made by a small firm in the Czech Republic, these are inexpensive but good-quality utility chisels.”
