Alex, it won't happen until next year, but I'll keep you in the loop, I'm also looking at a new blade from my regular Bailey #4, as hard as I try, I can't get a really sharp edge to last for any time at all on the blade I have. Now on the Stanley Sweet Heart #5C that I have, with the laminated blade, I can get a really sharp edge that really lasts a long time. I might spring for a new chipbreaker for that one, if it fits.
