Not to get off my own subject but I guess I could see the price of the Highland planes being what it is if it came from a world renowned blacksmith who hand forged the steel. As it is I bet that blade came from Hock, and is plain old O1 tool steel.

Back to my own subject.

Has anyone made a wood plane with a steel (maybe it is called a sole…soul…sol…) Bottom. If so can you point me to it? I have a couple pieces of 1/4 inch steel that would work.
