Yep, that looks familiar. My brother was “playing around” with a chisel one day and managed to put it down, sharp end first, across a power cord. Big pop, chisel went flying (might have been him pulling it in reflex – though of course it might not) and a big piece out the blade. Given that he was holding it at the time, he was lucky that he was holding it by the handle. Since plane blades are all metal, just as well you didn’t try catching it.
