Is this a Keen Kutter or a Keen Kutter blade, CB, and lever cap on a Sargent 409 base?
No marks on the base other than “MADE IN USA” Thanks

(On that sharp as ever thread, I have an example of the green squirrel tail and it says KUNZ on the blade.)

Maybe a Sargent No. 409, made for Keen Kutter brand….?

Thanks bandit, that’s kind of what I thought was going on but I just don’t know, I want to make sure this plane is “legit” in case it ends up on an auction site.

The models after 1950 did have a black base and red frog. They were made for Shapleigh by Sargent.

I agree. KK Made by Sargent. Somewhat hard to find.
