Terrible Experience and Horrendous Customer Service

I purchased a set of IBC’s bench chisels about three weeks ago with high hopes. When I decided to upgrade to a set of premium chisels and I saw that IBC had a new chisel that it was endorsed by Rob Cosman and David Charlesworth, I was really excited to get my hands on them. After placing my order, I immediately received an order confirmation and my card was charged in full. Since placing the order (three weeks ago) I have not heard from IBC at all and I have not received the chisel...

IBC chisels

Hi All, As all my bench chisels have side angles less than 90 degrees, that go all the way to the back of the chisels, not long ago I have decided to look around for some chisels with 90 degrees sides to the backs of the chisels. I remember that a while back IBC was looking into making chisels and because I already had two IBC plane blades in use for a long time now, so I’ve decided to look at their chisels.When looking for more information about these new chisels over the internet, ...

Bench Chisels Walnut Handles

Bench Chisels Walnut Handles

I’ve gone through various iterations of chisels over the years and finally found the perfect chisel for me. The new IBC bench chisels with the walnut handles fit my hands perfectly and the quality of the steel is unmatched in my opinion. Right out of the box they performed perfectly cutting in the butterflies on a new live edge walnut coffee tale. The ability to remove the handle & ferrule for sharpening is unique and makes sharpening easier and more precise. Also, the abil...

These long awaited chisels are now available. When faced with innovative design, it is difficult to come up with a definitive opinion. Time will tell.The connection between handle and blade is unusual. The top of the blade passes through a hardened ferrule and then threads into a hardened steel core. This extends to the top, where a solid, polished aluminium cap secures the maple handle. (American walnut is also available as an option). In the short term I found this arrangement works pe...

Rob Cosman's Ruthlessly Propagated Plane Blade and Chipbreaker

Rob Cosman's Ruthlessly Propagated Plane Blade and Chipbreaker

Hey there everyone. I have been feeling bad lately because all I do is read reviews. I am going to try try to start writing more. So here it goes. I always wondered about the aftermarket plane blades and whether or not they made much of a difference. Well, I got a good old No.4 about 6 months ago and figured I would have a go with one of the 2” IBC Pinnacle blade and chipbreaker sets that Rob Cosman ruthlessly advertises. The blade and breaker showed up and little honing was re...

IBC ROB COSMAN BLADE AND CHIP BREAKER THE FINEST BLADE MADE IN THE WORLD

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 marv...

Awesome product, exactly as advertised

Awesome product, exactly as advertised

My jointer plane is a vintage Stanley #7 SweetHeart that I bought off of eBay for $60. I spent a day truing up the sole and frog, along with another 3 or so days working on the blade and chipbreaker. I’ve used it like that for a few months, sharpening the blade about once a week as needed. It always worked “okay”, but I felt like it could be better. This was the first and only jointer plane I’ve ever owned. So I didn’t really have anything to compare it to as ...

IBC Pinnacle A2 Cryo #4 (2") Plane Blade

IBC Pinnacle A2 Cryo #4 (2") Plane Blade

03-09-2010 09:19 AM by dfdye | 15 comments »

After having the blade in my new #4 Footprint wear down more quickly than I would have liked, I figured I should get a good blade to try and extend my time working with wood rather than sharpening gizmos. There has been some discussion in the forum and in other reviews of the Pinnacle line of blades from Woodcraft, so I figured I would give one a try. Long story short, the Pinnacle blade is fantastic. The thickness difference between this blade and a stock cheap blade is huge, which requ...
