Basically there are two types of steel for chisels, I can’t recall their names but one is high speed steel and the other is harder and likely carbide.
If you are beginning, then it’s best to get used to sharpening chisels and develop a good system, they need sharpening often unless you like flying hunks of wood.
HSS are good, a good bowl gouge and a Versa Chisel is a must. Beyond that I don’t really use much except some round side scrapers.
This is the set I started with.
