Steve,

I did look at those, but the deciding factor for me was that Lee Valley offered a true imperial set (measured in inches/fractions thereof) whereas all the other Narex chisels I’m aware of are metric and the inch conversions listed are nominal, not exact.  I’ve chosen to run an imperial shop and didn’t want to mess with conversions and the opportunities for error they pose.  Apparently Lee Valley had these made specifically for them, hence why they aren’t available anywhere else.
