In an effort to augment my finishing tools beyond just using power tools, I have started to use my hand planes a little.

Most are inexpensive planes, so I decided to treat myself to a good quality overall usage plane and see how that will work for me.

This arrived the other day.

here it is out of the box ready for me to try out this weekend.

A great choice Cato. Did you get extra blades for different angles?

Stefang, I did get an extra blade so that I could have one at standard bevel and put a slightly different profile on the other one.

Hi Cato

I have the Veritas varient of this design with the extra irons. It makes a great shooting plane with the low angle iron and is very helpfull with the high angle one for smoothing highly figured wood. I find that with general smoothing the low angle iron can present problems not found with the standard 45 degree angle – depending on the wood. I recommend you expand your iron collection over time to take best advantage of the design.

Good luck and keep at expanding your hand tool skills.
