Having a grand old time making these miniature handplanes…this one has no glue, the sides are held in place with brass pins that are peened so they’re nice and tight and shouldn’t be going anywhere for at least 100 years.
The blade is O1 steel, body is Cocobolo. Cuts beautifully. The mouth is about 0.5 mm, quite tight.
This one will sell for $80 or so. I also sold the Luthier’s Knife to a guy in the United Kingdom so it’s gone from my shop now.
