PM-V11 is awesome. The better wear resistance is especially noticeable when planing the sides of plywood.

I’ve never used a LN, but the members here convinced me to get the PM-V11 when I bought a set of Veritas chisels, I haven’t regretted spending the extra money, not even a little bit.

I love their new blades. The steel is almost like the tool steel from the ‘40s and ‘50s.

Good old cast steel in my shop. Might not be the most exotic, but it sure does cut the wood.
BTW, most old cast steel items are about $10.00 each.

One thing I didn’t do while chopping dovetails yesterday was ease the sharp edges on the Veritas chisels. Cut my fingers in 4 places. I eased the edges this morning. The edges were quite sharp. The LN and Pfiel edges apparently had already been eased, but I worked on em anyway.

I purchased a Veritas #7 jointer with the PMVII blade for leveling out a maple/oak side grain benchtop. My Japanese planes were all too short to work well as jointers. It’s an awesome tool-a beast yet produces shavings as delicate as anything else I have and has not needed sharpening since purchased Nov. 2016.
