Hey Tech, the big box stores usually have sets of Irwin/Marples plastic-handles for around $20-30/set or so. I cut the handles off flat to a reasonable length for chopping & replace them when I ruin them. I’ve bought two-cherries-brand sets, which aI found rather nice for the bucks. Of course, you can hit up Japan Woodworker for some beautiful sets if you’re willing to spend a bit more. I tend to have three types of chisels: 1) those that I beat to death (cheap; as above), 2) those high-end ones for specific tasks (mortising, etc.), and 3) those that I just admire. Good luck, my friend!
