These are the same durable polypropylene blade cases that are now supplied with all Veritas bevel-up and bevel-down planes and blades (including the replacement blades we make for Stanley and Record planes). With a one-piece, hinged clam-shell design with a locking clasp, they are both easy to open and secure when closed. The raised bosses inside the case register with holes in the blade, fixing the blade in position to ensure its sharp edge is held away from the case walls.
Each case has an integral hang hole, and is designed to nest so you can stack multiple cases securely in a drawer or on shelving. For quick blade identification, two adhesive-backed labels are provided for marking the details, and a VCI (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) chip is included to protect the blade from corrosion while in storage.
The bevel-up blade case measures 2 5/8" × 5 1/2" × 1/2" thick; fits all Veritas block planes (including apron and skew), small, low-angle and bevel-up smooth planes, plus jack and jointer planes.
The bevel-down case is 3" × 8" × 1/2" thick; fits Veritas #4 & 4 1/2 smooth, #5 1/4 bench, and #6 fore, plus Veritas-made blades for Record and Stanley planes (#2, 3, 4, 4 1/2, 5, 5 1/4, 5 1/2, 6, 7 & 8 bench planes; #9 1/2 & 60 1/2 block planes).
