Block Plane Blades
It seems the BLOCK PLANE is the workhorse of many cabinet shops. Although taken for granted, this is a very handy and versatile tool. And, like the larger bench planes, it responds well to a better blade and a little TLC. These blades will fit Stanely and Record Block Planes and they may fit others. High Carbon or Cryogenically Treated A2 Tool Steel.
All are 3/32" thick x 4 1/4" Long.

Which one fits my plane?
Our Block Plane Blades are available in Two Widths: 1-3/8" for Stanley-Style Low-Angle planes and 1-5/8" for the 9-1/2, et al.
And There are Two Slot Configurations: 5/8" Wide Slot for new(er) Stanley planes and 7/16" Narrow Slot for the Old(er) Planes.
And to further muddy the water, you have two alloys to choose from:Our High Carbon or Cryogenically Treated A2* Tool Steel. (I recommend A2 for all you bamboo fly-rod makers. It holds up much better to the abrasiveness of bamboo.)
Get it? One of these eight choices should be right for you but if you need more input, give a call: 888-282-5233.
*A2 blades have an "A" in the part number.
