Hmmmm. I hope Chris forgives the diversion. Hock is a slippery slope. You will want more than one. Just like good potato chips.

I have both High Carbon and A2 blades and Hock Chip breakers in several of my planes. My “best” smoothing plane ATM is a #5 Bedrock with a Hock A2 blade and chip breaker. This is compaired to my “next best” which is a LN #4. I’ve also got a Stanley #65 low angle block plane with a Hock blade in it. It also cuts exceptionally.

I would recommend trying out Hock blades in your Stanleys if you get a chance. I am also looking at buying some of the blades he has designed for build your own planes.
