I went back and forth bt a vintage stanley and a new LN no 7, I also considered going with an 8. In the end I couldn’t justify the price tag on the LN. I got a good liking mid-40s stanley that was lovingly cared for, added a LV blade and chip breaker and it runs like a dream with very very little tlc. I can open it up to take big slices or have it tuned in to take full blade length wisps. I have not doubt the LN is fantastic but at 1/3 the cost and impeccable performance I am good with the Stanley. My sole was pretty darn flat as well.

I went with 7 over 8 bc the right opportunity came along. I have not used an 8 but the 7 has worked phenominally on the 20”x40” desk I am working on right now.
