I have both a Stanely #20 and a #113. The #20 is hands down the better tool. Haven’t used or seen a Kunz to know how they stack up, but based on overall reported company performance, I would personally find a good condition vintage Stanley or Record instead of buying a new Kunz.

Staying under $500 is easy. My recommendation would be to contact Patrick Leach and ask if he has any available. I’d bet he has one or two good condition #20’s floating around (if not, he’ll find one) and will be able to quote you a price. Guessing it will be between $150-250, with the top end being one that looks practically new.
