Those are from Mujing Feng http://www.mujingfang.com/t/eng/default.asp They are also sold by other places including Japan Woodworker, Lee Valley and others. I like them and have several. Some I bought from US outlets and some direct from China. ( a partial set of hollows and rounds). The only one I really don’t care for is their little grooving plane (plow). As is, it hurts my hand do use. Will be looking at some way to make it better or just reuse the irons but have not.

Of those, besides the hollows and rounds and the plow, I have a small block plane, rabbet plane and I bought a stack of their replacement irons for making my own Krenov style planes.

Of other planes, I still have a few metal planes (#40, #5-1/2, block planes, #45, #2C ) but mostly use wooden planes.

Some are just for fun. A block plane, smoother, jointer, rabbet, and scrub can do 99.95% of everything you can do with a plane unless you are doing moldings and such.

I too am attracted towards the wooden planes, they seem warmer and feel better in my hand (I test held some planes today at woodworking store – Burns Tools)
I like them and will start adding them to my Hand tool arsenal.
Needed:
Wooden Plane set
Chisel set – good quality to replace my Marples set that I destoyed
(honing guide)
A good, versitle hand saw, maybe a Gents saw
Marking gauge, with 2+1 pins
Wheel gauge, nice one that acually makes a straight mark
A GOOD reliable set of squares; 6” 90deg, 6” 45, 12 – 16” drafting square, T-square
more…

I have some of these, but the quality isn’t there…”Quality” – buy Quality once!, buy shit cheap-o and replace.
