I can understand your point of view, if you have the money, then why not. I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder on any given item.

Who then are the target market for such planes? I assume it is the serious amatuer with disposable income? I cannot believe a craftsman (or woman) could justify buying such an expensive tool as their daily or even occasional user tool, particulary as profit margins from their craft may be tight. If I were to commission a craftsman to build me an item of furniture I wouldn’t expect him to charge an additional premium because he had to cover the cost of his expensive plane/tool. I would simply take my business elsewhere.
