Tapered blades hold their position more securely in wooden planes. When held by a wooden wedge, any resistance encountered by the blade only serves to wedge it tighter in the throat, preventing slippage.
These 6" long blades are 3/16" thick at the bevel, reducing chatter, and taper to 1/16". Available in three widths, they are made of O1 high-carbon tool steel hardened to Rc58-60 and are lapped flat on the face.
Made in Canada.
