I adore my Lee Valley-Veritas medium shoulder plane, and after reading the Digger’s review now wish I had gotten it’s big brother (because of the bullnose feature). I have never had my hands on a Lie-Nieson plane, but they are slightly more expensive than the Veritas, and are essentially just finely made updates of Leonard Bailey’s bedrock series of planes. Veritas however re-thought and up-engineered the design to something new and I think improved.
I have yet to buy a dog from Lee Valley. They have an excellent and competitive hardware catalogue as well.

-- "Bordnerizing" perfectly good lumber for over a decade.
