Has anyone ever seen old, wooden hand planes where the front half is carved into the shape of an animal? They have a cross piece that I think is used to draw the plane toward oneself. Anybody know anything about these planes?

Okay, I found a picture (the one on the right):

I found an old plane that looks like this, except that the crossbar is broken off one one side and only about 1 inch remains on the right. Would it be worthwhile to buy this plane for about $25 and hope to resell it for a decent profit?

Have your say...
