Cryogenically treated blades let you use your plane more and sharpen less! The tool steel known as A2 has a great reputation for its superior edge holding properties. Renowned blade maker Ron Hock has gone one step further to cryogenically treat A2 blades. This extreme cold treatment (-320F) increases the steel’s toughness without any decrease in hardness. You get improved wear resistance without any increase in brittleness, so a Cryogenically treated blade will hold its edge longer. What does all this mean to you? Simply, that you can keep working instead of sharpening! Fits Stanley, Bailey, Record, Footprint, and most other planes. Honing required before use.
