Im following up this post. Ive been considering O2 vs PM-V11 for block planes. So what s the consensus now, two years later? I am a hobbyist, and have a decent sharpening set up with diamond plates and some water stones, dont mind sharpening. Im looking for the steel that gives the best edge for trimming and smoothing, without worrying about how frequently I sharpen. Is O2 it or does PM-V11 give the same edge??


I have Veritas BU planes with O1 and PM-V11. The PM gets just as sharp and holds the edge longer. A bit longer to sharpen and hone. Have a Veritas apron plane with PM thats gets more than sharp enough. It is no longer a ? for me, PM-V11 is the best material
