Shorter than traditional blade assemblies, these are specially designed for the low-slung wooden planes popularized by James Krenov.
Made from high-carbon (0.95%) steel hardened to Rc62, the blades take a keen edge (final honing required) and are a hefty 3/16" thick to substantially reduce chatter. At 1/8" thick, the chip breakers provide additional mass and stiffness and are shaped to allow shavings to pass over them smoothly.
The three widths of straight blade allow construction of a full range of bench planes, while the curved blade (approx. 4 1/2" radius) is ideal for making a hollowing or scrub plane.
