I recently got a 6mm Narex mortise chisel from Highland Woodworking. It has a wooden, not plastic, handle. I’m pretty sure it’s beech. The back was nice and flat and didn’t really require much lapping. The edge sharpened up easily using a honing guide and diamond stones. I did a test mortise in some pine and it cut very nicely. I looked at the versions from Lee Valley and Highland Woodworking. I bought a set of Narex bench chisels from HW, and they have the same color handle, so I went with the HW version just so my chisels would match.
