Nice! Does that Keen Kutter really have a Bedrock frog? I thought Stanley kept those only for themselves.

not at all in fact you can usually get in on a bedrock cheaper by looking for the keen kutters because most dont know that keen kutters were available in bedrock frogs. but you have to know also what to look for. for starters stamped in the toe where the knob is will be the size of the plane. usually you will see KK and the number. the bedrocks however were a single k with the number. like for instance my bedrock is a K5 the bailey version was KK5.

I agree that Keen Kutters with the single “K” are a great find. I have several and all at a fraction of what I’d have spent on Bedrocks. You can’t have too many planes. Way to go! -SST
