Just found this company located here in Kentucky, http://www.niceashplanes.com making some very nice looking hand planes (No Affiliation I might add).
I just found the names very unique and it looks like they are offering a good product at what seems to be very reasonable prices. Good to see another company from the USA starting up to supply woodworkers with another line of toys. Just thought some might like to see these. Just might have to order one to give them a try.
