The other day I bought one of these new pinnacle blades along with a hock blade for my new record planes you see in the pics. I got this blade after getting the email update from rob cosman with a link to youtube and the vid was him cutting or should i say shaving a piece of wood with an old stanley #4, he was getting full width shavings from the wood. I couldn’t belive my eyes with a stanley i thought no way so i thought it was a vid on how to sharpen the blades to get shavings like that, then through the vid he explains how it’s just a new blade in an old plane he got from ebay. I then thought he must have ran a lie nielson plane over the wood then the stanley with the new blade to get those shavings. Long story short i got the blades put in my new plane and after two or three strokes across a piece of pine i was getting the full shavings too for the first time since i bought any of my planes now i was excited i got a piece of hard maple samething full width thin shavings i was sold from there on. Trust me it’s hard to get me to buy something i seen a established woodworker put his or her name on or endorse i think of every way to put it down or not buy it. Well i can say this before you go buy a lie nielson plane try these blades you will not be dissapointed. By the way did i mention i never honed the blade either, if you run your finger across it very carefully you see and feel it’s razor sharp. I also did the same with the hock blade and i also got good shavings too not full width but tissue thin atleast 1 ply tissue. I wold give pinnacle blades four stars just cuz there are haters for everything out there but i want to see what’s to hate about these blades? THANKS for the look! ;)
BUYEM & TRYEM!
