Thanks for all the replies!

My idea currently is to buy Lie Nielsen O-1 Chisels. Good price-point I think, found a UK dealer so I don’t have the hassle with the toll-office… Later on, in the spring I will probably buy a set of 4 Blue Spruce Pairing Chisels for the special holidays when one dares to take a look at them…

Irvin-Marples: I can think they probably are good chisels, just not the stuff I’m looking for, I don’t want it from a large anonymous factory, probably in china. I prefer to give my money to a smaller company that I think do it right.. The cost aspect is quite uninteresting for me, they are cheap when knowing they will hold my lifetime and then some.
