I believe the after market plane blades are made from superior steel to OEM’s. The only one that I’m personally familiar w/ is the Hock blades. They are thicker and that helps too. You may also have to file the mouth of your plane a bit wider to accommodate the thicker blade. I have put Hock blades in 5 of my old Stanleys and only had to file one mouth.
