Great quality blade but a bit pricey

Pinnacle Replacement Plane Blade for Stanley #103 Block Plane Blade
I acquired an old Stanley 103 block plane (pocket plane)for a few dollars and thought it would come in handy for a lot of the small projects that I do. I was able to clean up and restore the plane to good shape but the blade was to badly rusted and damaged to restore. It is not a common blade size so I was worried I may not find a replacement so I was very happy to see that Pinnacle had one to fit the 103 Stanley. I cant say that I wanted to spend [$] for a replacement blade for such a cheap plane but I ended up going for it anyway.The blade is very thick and you can tell its a great quality blade. The blade was also flat and very sharp right out of the case. I had no issues with the quality of the blade but I did run into a couple of issues. The cutting edge was not perfectly square. I started using it and found that only one side of the blade was producing shavings. The blade also fits very tight into the plane so there is no room for right or left adjustment. I checked the blade and it was slightly off square and it took some time honing it before I was able to get it right. The honing process was tough due to the thickness and quality of the steel.It would be great if they made this blade slightly smaller in width so that it was not such a tight fit in the plane body. Other then those minor issues it is a great quality blade and its good that they offer a blade of that size for those who want to buy a new one.
