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.

very good product
comes close to making a silk purse out of a sows ear
I can't say enough good things about Hock blades. The first plane I bought would not work. It stayed in the original box for 25 years as I could not make it work. I learned how to feddle a plane in woodworking class and got the blade razor sharp. Two passes over red oak and it was dull again. Someone in the class suggested switching to Hock blades. A few passes on 8000 and 12000 grit sand paper and it was razor sharp. I have not had to resharpen it now for several years. I don't use it more than a few times a year, but it's still too sharp to be worth resharpening. I always buy the cryrogenically treated blades. The edge is really tough and long wearing. I have put these blades and chipbreakers in all 7 of my planes. I bought this blade and chip breaker for a #7 jointer plane that I purchased at the same time. It works just like a plane should. I took a number of 6' long shavings from a mahogany board and all were in one continuous curl.
