    Do you mean the sharpening angle? It's bevel down, sharpened at 25~30.

    I let my nebor use it an he messed it up the blade he took a file to it an most of the blade is 20 degree an rest all over the place , so no one gets to use my hand planes anymore so I will do primary at 25 an set micro at 30

    Your 25 main/30 micro-bevel ought to do you just fine.

    I have always wondered how well those planes work. If ....they so great how come they have never been reproduced by say LV on LN? Does the spokeshave do them out of a job? Would have thought a shave would not take a uniform parallel wide shaving like a plane blade would do but how does one get purchase on those planes to cut end grain ?
    cheers

    pretty steep price Euro 259 thats around $313 in the range of a premium plane.

    See ebay has a whole bunch of old stanleys for way better pricing
