Not that bad
Stanley Block Plane, No. 9-1/2
I make a lot of ornate boxes which I sell, along with some other furniture, etc. I wanted a low-cost block plane that I didn't need to worry about getting dinged up, as dropping or banging around a high dollar Lie-Nielsen is not my idea of fun. So I picked up this little rig. It does OK, but it's not what I would call a "finish quality" furniture plane by any means. It took a bit of tuning to get it to cut well and a bit on the surface plate to true the sole, but that was to be expected. I have replaced the blade with a Lie Nielsen, as they are far superior in quality, and I don't have all day to spend sharpening.
I do have 4 other block planes for assorted purposes, as block planes have a "bevel up" iron which will serve different purposes with different angle bevels a L-N, old Stanley 118 low angle, and old Kunz, and another old plane with only a "Made in USA" marking, and I feel all 4 are superior to this plane in overall quality. Even the older planes still retain their original blades, which hold an excellent edge as well.
I own planes from Millers Falls, Kunz, L-N, WoodRiver, and even old Stanley's and I believe a few others as well, and this is by far the lowest quality of all that I own. The only reason I gave it a good rating is because it does work decently, and considering the price point, it's about all I expected.
If you want top notch, go with one of the other manufacturers I mentioned earlier, as this will bring disappointment. If you want a decent knock around and rough out plane, this will do fine.

Shoulda read the reviews
First thing I noticed is that the sole and the sides of the plane were ground on a very coarse grinder and did not feel good in my hand. I had to flatten the sole and the sides to get it smooth enough to want to use. [...]

Garbage Grade Plane
San Bernardino, CA
This tool was made with little attention to design or quality control. My biggest gripe is the method used to hold the blade in place. As you rotate a lever clockwise it tightens down on the blade. If it stayed tight, that would be a plus, but it comes loose as soon as start cutting. This is it's most obvious example of choosing junk design over quality.
One other thing, the blade dulls quickly.
Not quite satisfied with the quality
Seems to be a different product, a low quality product, that is shown in the website. The front and cap lever are thinner and weaker. The overall finishing are very different. And some marks that can be seen in the image in the website is different or is not present in the real product.
