Topic tags/keywords: question

I recall hearing about a company that makes very expensive hand planes that are custom made to the buyers specifications. They even had video on their web site showing the process. Does anyone know the site or name of the company? There were REALLY expensive hand planes. I recall that they could cost $10K for one. It came up in conversation with a few woodworkers the other day and none of us can remember the name of the company.

Chris Schwarz had one of these on his bench at the WIA Conference. It was beautiful, but definitely in the category of “If you have to ask how much, you can’t afford it”.
