- IBC Pinnacle Rob Cosman Blade and chip breaker set
- Brand: IBC | Category: Hand Planes
When it comes to hand planes people have lots of ideas about whose is the best. There are several premium hand planes; Lie Nielsen, Veritas, Bridge city, Wood River and The granddad of the bunch Stanley along with many others. These planes all claim to be the best or the innovator with new frog designs, re-worked Bedrock designs, bronze bodies and ductile steel. There are those who prefer a 125 year old bailey or bedrock but these old planes simply can’t hold a candle to the modern marvels of today.
What if i told you it’s all crap and the brand of plane doesn’t matter, you would say I am crazy right I was asked a couple of weeks ago to try out a blade and chip-breaker and if I put them in one of my old Stanley planes it would challenge my new $300 Lie Nelson Plane. I was floored by the claim and said because my mom is from Missouri Show Me. So they sent me several sets of these Rob Cosman Matched sets when they arrived I grabbed the box and ripped it open like a kid at Christmas I looked at the blades and thought I have seen tons of blades but i have not in 43 Years of woodworking seen a blade and chip breaker that came close to this quality and craftsmanship. The machining is beyond good it’s great
