I use two mortise chisels the most: 1/4 and 1/2. It really depends on your work, but if I had to give one up, it’d probably be the 1/2 because I do make 1/4 mortises and you really need a strong chisel for those.

With respect to the bevel edge chisels, if I only had two, I’d probably go with 1/4 and 3/4. But that’s not ideal. Shop for some vintage socket chisels on ebay and you could get far more for your money than two LNs, but of course the LNs are much more desirable.
