I like the Narex chisels. I also have a set of WoodRiver from Wood Craft that are comparable as far as holding an edge and size of the bevel, but have a fatter handle that fits my long fingers much better. No idea about the current Irwin Marples but my “main” chisels I use everyday are old refurbished Marples with beach handles… There is no comparison there. The original Marples are fantastic.

A good friend of mine swears by those HF wood handled bevel edge chisels though. Apparently they are a decent set though I have no first hand with them.
