Yeah, I saw that video before… that’s really scary sharp, i don’t even want to get my fingers close to a blade that sharp. I wonder if he used any special method to get the blade so sharp.

I went to that Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Chicago and had a chance to try that plane and others that Ron Breese had there. I’ll tell you what: If I had even the slightest way to justify the cost of one of those planes, I’d have two. I’m working on it.

I think that plane does that because its beefy. And look at the thickness of the blade. Little or no chatter and a really scary-sharpening… No magic there, and no plane is worth $1000. Just saying…
