“I have seldom had experience with a company with such careful attention to customer satisfaction. Although I am sure my orders are smaller than most, your products have been of the highest quality and your responsiveness to my special requests have always been treated with respect and timeliness. My thanks to all of your staff."
These silicon-bronze planes are a study in cooperation. They are based on patterns from Jimmy D'Aquisto's round sole planes for carving archtops and backs that were originally given to him by John D'Angelico. They've been worked, reworked and refined with input from Steven Andersen, Steve Klein, Bob Benedettto, Marc Maingard, Guy Rabut, and Steven Marchione.
The high carbon steel blades (made by Ron Hock) are about a third thicker than standard blades, and offer more stability and closer throat settings.
Periodically we have some 2nd grade planes with small visual defects that will not affect the use of the plane. See representative photo
