For a class I got a Chris Pye set made by Aurio…. was ~300 bucks for a 7 piece set.

Got the CARVING set, not the Lettering set.

For what you are showing, I would likely go with Pfeil, when Woodcraft has their 15% off sale.

Just because you get a set and use 3 of the chisels all the time… and hardly touch the others.
I Suspect you would find that the Fishtail style is much more handy than straight, it is MUCH easier to get into corners, and to cut grooves with ‘turns’. But as you sharpen, it is going to get narrower.

Mary May has a pretty good discussion of her buying pattern over the years.
