For most chisels, lathe, woodworking, or even kitchen knives there are bad, good, and great. The bad ones are good to stay away from. But if you can find decent ones then it’s a matter of sharpening. I’ve got various chisels of various qualities. All of them I can get super sharp by correctly sharpening them. The issue is how long they stay sharp. The great ones stay sharp a great amount of time. The good ones stay sharp a good amount of time.

You’ve got to get sharpening stuff and learn how to use it no matter what chisels you have as they will all need sharpening eventually. But you can go with a less expensive brand of chisel if you need to and still be in good shape.
