Chisels from the UK - what to shop for?


My brother is living in London (Chelsea to be exact). His wife is back in the states for a couple of weeks and he has time on his hands. He likes to go shopping at all the shops and has offered to see what he might find in the way of old chisels for me. The last time I asked him to seek out a Norris A5 smoother and he turned one up that worked out to be $200 exchange.
So given the open ended category of "chisels", what would you shop for? Let's frame it up with my current supply (embarrassing). I have one set of Sears Craftsman 1/4" through 1", circa 1972. These are bevel edge, plastic handles and rather short blades. I am sure they are well qualified to knock holes in plaster. I also own a 1/2" crank neck Henry Taylor paring chisel (4" long blade).
I am sure I would use chisels for more than I do now if I had some really good ones. I'm a growing sucker for the old stuff, if the price is decent. I want them to use, not collect.

Don't scoff at ALL Sears chisels. The make 2 decent sets currently. IIRC, the blue handle ones are around $90 a set and hold up pretty well. They are made in England; Sheffield, I think. The are a heck of lot better than the Marples line that HD sells.

Actually my old ones are pretty good. I just don't like the short blades.
