I was not a hand plane user until recently. Went to a local woodworking show where Lee Valley was demonstrating the Veritas family of planes. My first and only plane so far is a Veritas low angle smoothing plane. I purchased this plane for the flat sides for use with a shooting board. I now own 5 blades for this plane that make it so versatile. I have 2 25 degree blades, one straight and one cambered; one 38 degree blade, straight; and 2 50 degree blades, one straight and one cambered. I bought the additional blades over time but with an investment of $320 I have 5 planes to use
