I received one of these for my birthday and I'm delighted. After a short time honing on a Faithful double sided diamond stone, it was sharp enough to shave my arm. It's beautiful to use too. There's a lot of snobbery about planes but this works just fine for me.

I have had one of these planes for about two years now. It is just brilliant and has become one of my favorite tools. Well made with a superb blade which keeps its edge really well. You can pay a fortune for planes. Don't bother - get one of these they are superb and easily match the more expensive stuff.

What is the micro bevel angle on the 60 1/2 block plane?

Asked by David Millichip on 11th of April 2019

The plane is supplied with the blade honed to 25 degrees.

It is recommended to add a secondary/micro bevel angle of 30 degrees before use.

The blade can be sharpened with either oilstone or diamond whetstone .

A honing guide (FAIHG) can be used to help hone the blade at the correct angle.
