LV and Narex are at it again

If you email customer service directly, they can arrange to buy individual chisels. The 1/2" is $34.50(CDN) and the 3/4" is $36.00(CDN), and based on that I expect the 1" would be $38-39. The next questions is, should I get one or two, and in what size?

I expect 3/4" would be good for flush trimming plugs and so on, but if I get the 1/2" I can quickly clean out pretty much any dado I'm ever going to cut, whereas I'm not sure that the 3/4" is narrow enough.

Why these over a flush trim saw for trimming plugs and why these over a router plane for dadoes? Is it "just another way" or do some of you prefer this way (if so, why)?

Imo these are for when you need/want a really good finish right off the cutting tool.

Perhaps a bit of a solution in search of a problem. In that particular example, nothing stopping one from using a regular chisel.

One of the biggest Narex fans there is (I own the entire line in the light finish) but can't see myself buying these.

You can't use a regular chisel to flush bow ties in the middle of a table top. It's a specialty tool for sure, but it has it's uses.

Or in inside corners. As for dados, I would use a router plane to level the bottom, but they do not remove the waste quickly. I've used a mallet and regular chisel with the bevel down, but I did not feel like I had the best control.
