Crown Mortise Chisel (affiliate): https://amzn.to/3axkXOm
(This is one of the only affordable mortise chisels currently in stock online. I cannot say how well it will last, although the quality appears to be fair for the price. If you can’t find a 5/16 mortise chisel, a 3/8 is just as good. Pick one and forget about it.)
