If you're buying a new chisel, you could always buy a boxed set! ;)
I prefer antique tools if I can find good ones at a reasonable price, makes buying sets a little tricky. Gutted I missed on on the stands at Maker Central this year ☹

Not sure if it helps at all but The Wood Whisperer did a good video on breadboard ends and the issues with expansion here
Thanks, his video was really helpful.

Couldn't you just rout both top and breadboard end for a floating tenon, but then glue the tenon into the top?
I missed this earlier, but precisely this technique was demonstrated in the above video and I think it’s what I’m going to go with. It will maximise the amount of wood left as I won’t need to cut in to the top to form tenons.
