Which HOCK blade do I need for my Block Plane?
We offer four different block plane blades in two different alloys. The first determinant is the blade width, either 1 3/8” or 1 5/8”. The next is the width of the slot in the center of the blade. It will be either about 7/16” wide or about 5/8” wide. Available in our High Carbon Steel (HC) or Cryogenically Treated A2 Tool Steel. HERE'S A PHOTO!
