I like Bon Tool, www.bontool.com, good tools and not too expensive (not cheap either).
Trow and Holden has good tools, but seem to cost a little more.
My most used tools are: 3 pound drilling hammer, regular 1 1/2" chisel, pitching tool, stone hammer (kinda wedge shaped sledge), and a standard bricklayer's hammer. I have lots of others but consider these to be the most necessary.
Mine are all steel, but if you work with granite and other really hard stone it would be smart to pay the extra money for carbide tipped tools.
