I purchased the medium WoodRiver shoulder plane in December; it was 20% off and then I had an additional $10 coupon. Before tax; $110. This deal was too good to pass up. After a few minutes on a 4000 grit water stone the blade was razor sharp. The body was perfectly square and the blade adjustment works very smoothly. I have never used a Veritas or Lie Nielson should plane and cannot compare the WoodRiver plane to the others. I am very pleased with the WoodRiver shoulder plane and would recommend it to anyone.
