Thanks for the great link!
Agree, there is a large degree of difficulty getting info on the European planes.

I’ve been accumulating some Nooitgedagt and Eskiltuna planes, I know very little about them and have to be content with seeing how they compliment my user style, and sharpening techniques, and hope that the academic stuff about their history will eventually come my way.

I see lots of Russian and Baltic planes listed on eBay, and wonder if they’re worth having as well. I just don’t know!
