good replacement for the american version of the stanley #4 and #5 bench planes. with a properly set up chip breaker, this does a quite serviceable job in both a smoothing plane or a jack plane depending on the camber that you grind into the edge. (~8" radius works well for jack plane to a barely noticeable camber for smoothing plane.)

the steel appears to take an edge well, and holds it for a reasonable period.

I ordered one of these irons to replace a rusted iron in an old Bailey plane that I was restoring. I was expecting an average quality blade, nothing special. The one I got was so bowed that I would never have been able to flatten the back of the blade. Even if I was to forgo flattening the back of the iron, the bow in the blade would make it impossible get the proper angle on the edge.

It is clear that the manufacturing process for these irons is seriously lacking. It seems that they take fresh, cold-rolled steel, stamp it, bevel the edge, and send it on its way. No effort was made to flatten the steel, or at least it seems that way.

I gave this manufacturer a second chance, and had Amazon send me a replacement blade. The second blade was even WORSE than the first. After two faulty blades, I felt I should write a review. Looks like I'm going to have to drop some cash on a Hock blade.

This is a good replacement for your stanley bench plane. I rea some reviews before purchasing that said it wouldn't hold an edge, but I decided to try it for myself since the price is so low. This iron boasts a 25degree bevel. I went ahead and ground the bevel down to 30degrees like the original. I find that it holds its edge nicely. Also the face was exceptionally flat on this one when I got it which saved a lot of time poloshing. I will buy these any time I need a replacement iron.

Product dimensions shown, are not accurate.

I purchased this as a spare blade so as to make it into a slightly cambered cutting blade, in my #4 and 5 hand planes.

The blade I received WAS NOT ground square. One edge was sloped .040-.050" and rounded.
Cutting edge was not 90 degrees to the blade length.
(Perhaps the operator fell asleep and leaned to one side during the grinding process).

The blade had to be reground, honed and stropped to make it function for its intended end use, to make it "scary sharp".
Was able to make shavings of .001".
(Before that sharpening process, I maybe could have used it with a mallet and make chopping cuts).

This product was made from a "good steel", like used in quality cutting tools.
The material thickness is .078" thick---would have preferred .125" thick material, for more rigidity.
(.078" thick can easily flex).
For the price, this is a good blade.

BTW---the blade received, does not come with the chip breaker, as shown in the photo.

Got this to replace the blade in an old Stanley craftsman plane.

The blade was quickly tuned up. No large flat spots on the blade and it was trued and sharp in a few minutes

Holds an edge well and makes paper thin shavings.

There may be better blades, but not for the money this blade costs.

And nothing more. A simple Stanley plane iron. Not too thick, needs to be flattened, sharpened and honed, yada yada. It's not a Hock iron, but it's not like it's low quality either.

Works great for me.

I found the steel to be quite soft compared to other irons I have. Good news for quick sharpening - bad news for holding the edge.

A hobbyist in wood, I have an aging (35 yrs+) dulling bench plane. The replacement blade fits right and produces the sing, the fragrance, and the long curls of pine I recall from a sharp tool. I've used it for about a hour shaping a butcher block bench-top. The reduced quality of cheap planes on the market and the big price of quality models convinced me to put mine to the grindstone. But first, I ordered a replacement blade just in case my home-sharpening doesn't go as hoped. Still haven't sharpened the old one yet.
