Crook Neck Preference / Source?

I use a crook (or bent) neck chisel for cleaning up squeeze out along perpendicular joints.

I use it sort of like so in a slicing motion (sorry about the blurry photo).

That being said, the one I have is 3/8" and I am looking for a wider one. A 1" is probably about right. A shorter one would be nice too; sort of like a combination between a crook neck and a butt. What say the brain-trust? Sources, favorites, experiences? TIA.

 

P.s. My thumb is not missing . . . it's just the pic ;-)

I have a bull nose which works well as a chisel plane.  The task I am working with requires something longer and narrower but, not too narrow.  I'm going to give the 1" Narex a shot along with the 3/8" I already have . . . maybe it is a 1/2".  I'll check and report back after the Narex shows up.  Thanks to all !
