So I have the blades back after machining and they look great. I just need to get these heat treated now. The larger ones are a bit too big to heat treat like I currently do my moulding plane blades which I do myself in-house. I want these to be heat treated without having to do a lot of flattening afterwards.
I have a stamp designed for marking the blades. That will take some time to get but look forward to having that to complete the look.
I stuck a blade in my trusty smoother that never leaves my bench top just to see how it will look. It looks great to me. What do you think?

I am busy working away trying to get other things lined up for the Hand Tool Event in Charleston with Lie-Nielsen on March 28-29th. Also my website has been down for about a year now as I rework it. It is time to get that finished and back up and running.
This computer keeps demanding my attention when all I want to do is be working in the shop. Back to normal soon enough.
