FWIW – - I like hock irons. However, I think their kits are a little over priced and, IMO, it is more fun to use your own wood and then you have the option of using some really interesting wood.

It is a little harder to use your own wood because the kits come pre-cut. I put together a plane made with cheap wood first be fine tune the dimensions and get everything positioned just right before I do the real thing with really interesting wood. The last plane I made featured leopard wood.

I visited Hock’s workshop in Ft. Bragg California. Bought blades for about 9 planes, and a scribing knife or two. World production of tool grade steel has shifted to France and China. To serve his customers, Ron Hock has to have a reliable supply chain, and in these unsteady times, France is it.

Sweden doesn’t make or sell plane blades.

The spokeshave kit is VERY high on my list of things to play with.
