Description

In Detail

These plane irons from a first class Japanese maker, use a high carbon steel (Blue Paper Steel #2) for the cutting edge, hardened to HRC68, laminated to a low carbon steel backing. The result is a blade, which will take a razor edge. They will cut cleaner and last many times longer than conventional plane irons. Fit Stanley, Footprint, Record and many other Bailey type planes.

Do not sharpen too often as the laminate will run out.

I bought Japanese laminated blades for my stanley 4 & 51/2 planes. I am a professional furniture maker of thirty years. My planes are used every day. Years ago, plane irons and chisels were routinely laminated with stellite here in britain. I have a few. Initially, I was delighted with my new Japanese blades. They are unusable now I've sharpened the laminate away. The laminate does not go very far up the blade.

FANTASTIC EDGE

I BOUGHT ONE OF THESE BIMETAL BLADES A YEAR AGO AS THE EDGE ON MY RECORD TUNGSTEN BLADE WOULD DEVELOP MINUTE CHIPS WHEN PLANING AFRICAN BLACKWOOD. THIS JAPANESE BIMETAL BLADE TAKES AN AMAZING EDGE AND LASTS FOUR ORFIVE TIMES LONGER. AS MOST OF THE BLADE IS REALATIVELY SOFT, IT IS EASY TO SHARPEN.HOW I WISH I HAD BOUGHT ONE SOONER!

Top Quality

I bought a 2" version of these 20 years ago. I was really pleased to find that the new 2 3/8" blade wa the same make. Not too difficult to sharpen. It takes a real mirror finish to the rear. With an 8000 ceramic stone to give it a honing angle it cuts like a dream. I matched it with a Quangsheng chipbreaker. Better than my Stanley?Record blades. Nearly the equal of the Rob Cosman, but it fits any Stanley/Record without any changes to the mouth, frog, etc.The cutting edge lasts, but it is slightly brittle, so no nails.

A transformation

This blade has transformed an old 'Rapier' smoother. The blade was so sharp out of the packet that it shaves end-grain mahogany into slivers one can read through!
My blade appeared well ground and polished, although I haven't yet measured the angle. The only downside: I'm finding it harder to justify a Lie-Nielsen or Veritas.
Recommended.

2 3/8

Having bought a vintage Stanley No.7 jointer in great condition and cleaned it up, I decided it deserved a brand new blade so picked up a 2 3/8" version of one of these. It comes covered in a rust preventing film, and with an adequately sharp edge already ground so you can start planing away without worrying about sharpness. The only flaw I can pinpoint is the grinding is not to my taste, it's ground to 30 degrees and the bevel is just slightly off being square to the sides. Both of these can be fixed, but a blade with a 25 degree and 100% square bevel would've got 5 stars instead of 4. The blade does as advertised in holding a very sharp edge, producing scarily thin shavings, and the edge retention is also great, both these are definately instantly noticeable as being superior to the stock Stanley blade. Overall I'm quite pleased with the blade and it's value for money, and I think in time I'll upgrade all my Bailey's to use one of these.
