Ive been using the powerfix chisel set as recommended by Paul Sellars for a few years and im in the market for a set that will last me a while. Ive heard brilliant things about the Narex Richter range and like the small edge bevel ala Lie Nielsen. Has anyone got any other recommendations of ones to consider? Workshop Heaven own brand? Other Narex ranges?

I've the Lie Nielsen ones and to be honest, I was a bit taken aback by how small they were. I'd have thought for that money they'd have been more akin to a standard size like Stanley or such

I thought they were Stanley copies.

Anyway, the Ashley Iles bench chisels are nice and keep an edge well.

Paul Sellers thinks that those chisels are les couilles de chien. Have they worn out already?

Do you have a budget?
Around £150. It never started that high but it keeps getting budged up! I watched the Katz Moses review of the the Richters and was hugely impressed, as was he
