I got the three piece set of Narex Mortise chisels from Highland. Been very happy with them. The fit and finish is very good. The edge retention good and they do not appear to be too brittle. I’d buy these again, but would opt for a larger set.

In refference to the above comment about Narex being a vanadium alloy, I dissagree. They are a manganese alloy. Manganese imparts a work hardening property to steel, not brittle. I can’t speak to the comparison to Japanese chisels, however, since I do not own any of those.

My only regret is I got the 3 pc set instead of the 5 pc. Now, if I want more they cost more per each.
