In Detail

The standard block plane is preferred for general purpose work. The 20° bed angle plus the blade's 25° bevel angle results in an effective cutting angle of 45°. The low profile lever cap fits the hand well, at only 3.2mm higher than its low angle variant (weight 790g(1.3/4lb)). In all other respects, it is the same as the low angle block plane. Included is a lapped blade, 41mm wide and options of O1 or PM-V11 tool steel blades are available. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 micro inches) or better.

Veritas Standard Block Plane

Why the Veritas Standard Block Plane is my favourite tool

"I’ve had it for 10 years now and I’m on my second iron, which should give you some indication as to how much I use it. It’s pretty battle scarred now, but I use it every day and it performs all the operations you’d expect of it. Sharpening with diamonds allows me to keep the plane working at its best."

"I can get the iron razor sharp and it holds an edge far longer than anything else I’ve used."
