I purchased a veritas bevel up smoother off Craigslist that came with two plane irons. I just noticed they both lack “veritas” logos, but do have the same overall shape and two adjuster circles. The rectangular like cutout in the middle of the iron is different.

The plane is not fake (and if it is it rivals veritas quality).

Anyone know who else makes irons for veritas planes?

Interesting. Thanks for posting that. I believe the plane is relatively new and they don’t appear to sell anything for veritas stuff anymore.

Additionally it also appears the difference in shape is related to A2/O1 vs PMV11 steel.

Still no logo though…which even the IBC, hock, etc irons all have.

I seem to remember a german maker that made a clone and Cremona, maybe another one from India?

That’s exactly what they look like! With all the searching I did I can’t believe I didn’t find either of the links you guys posted. Thanks!

I also reached out to Lee Valley and here was their response. So maybe either a Cremona iron or from Lee Valley.

“It could be either O1 or A2.
PM-V11 has a distinct shape plus all recent blades have a logo.

The best way to tell is the radius of the back edge (or rear of the blade). Each of them is distinct. That’s how we keep track of them during manufacturing.

A2 and PM-V11 have a radius of approximately 3/8” but PM-V11 has a distinctive, angled hole shape.
O1 blades have a smaller, 3/16” radius.”

Have your say...
