    WTB: Krenov style plane blade and chip breaker

    Just looking to see if any Family members have a Hock Krenov style plane iron and chip breaker they aren't using. I'd prefer 1 1/2 - 1 3/4" wide. Thinking to try my hand at a plane from scratch.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Hi Ken.
    Sorry but I do not have any spare one but there is no need of having a specific Krenov stlyle Hock blade and chipbreaker.

    If you have it, have a look at Krenov's book The impractical cabinet maker, and you'll see that what he did at the beginning was to cut the back of a normal plane blade.

    Davind Finck's book Making and mastering wood planes is another good source of information on Krenov's way of making planes, and there is a chapter on making a chipbreaker as well.

    Obviously Hock blades are very good and maybe that's why you want it
    Best regards,
    Toni
