I love my Narex mortise chisels. If the regular bench chisels are as good, and no reason to think they are not, they should be fine. I have a few old Stanley #60s, some Fullers and a set of Wood Rivers and some made in the USA Buck Brothers and one Irwin/Marples. With that as my reference point, I think the Narex chisels are the best I own.

Now, if I had some Ray Iles, Lee Neilson, Veritas , Two Cherries or similar, I might have a different opinion. But, for the money I think the Narex are just fine. I even think the oval beech handles are nice, but I know some folks think they are ugly.
