The fully machined mating fit between the frog and body along with a 3mm thick blade virtually eliminates the possibility of chatter. The soles are hand flattened, the cherry wood knob and handle are polished with a wiping varnish. The A2 cryogenically treated blade only requires a light honing before the plane is ready to use. The manganese bronze No.4 weighs in at a solid 2kg(4.1/2lbs) whilst the ductile iron version is a slightly lighter 1.8kg(4lbs).

Lie-Nielsen No 4 Smoothing Plane

It's one of the best planes made ever on this earth. I have purchased it in bronze and it's a piece of engineering masterpiece. Once sharpen and set correctly works like a dream. If you can afford it get on....it will serve you to the end of your days on here, thanks.

Awesome

Very difficult to describe this plane (bronze body) with words alone, you have to try/use one to truly just how good this tool is. Trouble is, once you've bought your first Lie Nielsen, its the start of an expensive hobby!!

Excellent Tool

Hadn't heard of these untill my 1st visit to Axminster. Purchased one back last year and adding to the collection has become somewhat of an obsession.Very difficult choice between Lie Nielsen and Veritas, same qulaity just a different preferentila chice I suppose.

Perfect!

Absolutely fantastic tool, exactly what you'd expect and then some. I'd never got the chance to hold one before but buying one is one of the best decisions I've made, you'll never regret it!
