I was just searching through for videos on some hand planes I’ve been considering buying and came across this video. I thought it was cool and saw it’s only been watched 112 times. I’m leaning towards Clifton planes but I also like Lie Nielsen planes too. Decisions Decisions… Does anyone have any Clifton planes that could help me decide?

Kyle, Fine Woodworking Magazine did a test on all the new hand planes and the Clifton’s and Lie Nielson planes finished at the top of the list in terms of quality.

I think they will both perform about the same so I don’t think you will loose by choosing one over the other.
